Just a new twist Craig. Blaming non-elected beaurocrats and not government for a change.


Ho hum. I suppose you imagine all these bureaucracies just dropped out of the sky?
Government created them dolt.

Alright Craig, I'll accept your words as just a 'partial' victory for today.

What we should do

deregulate stem cell research to allow private  corps to fund it

Invest in open source diagnosis machine learning

And mandate genetic engineering to eliminate disorders before it even occur


I can imagine a future where genetic engineering eliminates many diseases, maybe even sociopaths.  Unfortunately, people get scared at the idea of genetic engineering.  People are always afraid of progress.  Science fiction shows this.

It's mostly only "progressives" who fear progress Ruby.

No Ruby, it's religious beliefs that are holding up progress. Nobody fears genetic engineering of the sort we're talking about.

You have a point when you talk about GMO's. Europe certainly does fear.

It's more than a point, it's a way of life for some people to fear GMOs and genetic engineering in general.

We already have the technology to give everyone an intellect like mine and the sports skills of an NBA allstar.

But we don't. And you can't blame religious fundamentalism in a western world that's becoming less religious every day.
  

This moral relativism of yours is exactly what lets government take this freedom, then that freedom, until we have lost them all.

Are they found within that big group of young Americans who think the earth is flat and try to reenact Druid ceremonies and worship  The Goddess Gaia? Earth Cookies and Tree Huggers? That's my guess, but because so few of them work, they have lots of time to be "activists" and march against GMOs, even while they eat Mexican food made with GMO corn... Smiley
