Botox Removes Emotion Recognition from the Injected

I am fascinated by the Botox revolution because it irrevocably removes important communication clues to the status of the emotional well being of the injected.  On January 8, 2007, I wrote — “Wearing Your Deathmask in Life” — and the poison that is Botox certainly makes the injected the owner of a corpse face:

We all wear masks. Once you’ve lived long enough, you begin to recognize and read people via the mask of their face before any words are spoken.

There was a time — in the pre-industrial Age — when families would raise their own crops, hunt their own food and feed their own families. You canned food for the winter.
