Freedom is a basic human right, while energy is not. Energy is a commercially-produced product that is available for a fee, in order to extend your personal horsepower beyond your own efforts. Everyone should be free to purchase energy if they have the need to do so, but nobody has the right to demand free energy just because they are human.
This is reminiscent of phrenology in the 1800s where ‘scientists’ would look for bumps and dents in the cranium in order to predict personality or other mental traits. It was later disproven as a pseudo-scientific hoax, and largely abandoned. Reading eye movements will prove useless as well.
Sheikh Zayed, father of the UAE, was an early adopter of environmental practices, indicating the compatibility between sustainable development and the Koran. This affinity may be one reason why Adolf Hitler (a radical ‘green’) had a such a robust relationship with the Islamic world during WWII. In other words, their mutual hatred of Jews may have a reason, but not the only reason for their mutual attraction.
Regardless of statements to the contrary, this technology will ultimately lead to the attempted cloning of humans. Technocrat scientists invent because they can, not because there is any good, moral or ethical reason to do so. The guiding philosophy is whatever science can do, it should do.
Radical environmentalists are asserting themselves again in California as they seek to mandate solar panels for all new homes, which could cost up to $30,000 more per unit. The Technocrat mindset is that there is a scientific solution to every conceivable problem, but personal freedom of choice does not enter their mind.
