There is no ethical debate taking place in public view that argues the case against using synthetic DNA to create life-forms not found in nature. In our opinion, it is patently insane because once established in a gene strain, it becomes permanent and thus replicates indefinitely. What is the impact on other life forms, including humans? Nobody can possibly know.
DARPA invests capital into private enterprise with the sole intent of harvesting new technology that can be militarized and weaponized for the purpose of warfare. In this case, applying extinction technology to insects is theoretically transferrable to any other species as well.
This is an example of Reflexive Law being applied, which I explained in Chapter 7 of Technocracy Rising: The Trojan Horse of Global Transformation. This whole twisted mess started when the radical Center for Biological Diversity (based in Tucson, Arizona) sued the state of California for alleged abuses that endangered a native frog, that required the U.S. Fish & Wildlife to intervene and sequester huge tracks of land. In the meantime, the ranchers are being forced to comply with regulations that they had no part in creating in the first place.
Is this the height of insanity or a carefully crafted assault on humans in general? Eco-radicals have been waging a war against humans for years now, and it is a global phenomenon. In their view, humans have no higher standing than a river, a glacier, an ant or a rattlesnake.
Naturally, Paul Ehrlich of Population Bomb(1970) infamy, is at the heart of this story. Not one single prediction in his original book came true. But, that doesn’t deter a true Technocrat like Ehrlich from trying to grab headlines again. Of course, his new prediction requires urgent, urgent, urgent action to thwart the future.
Scientists get plenty of money from grants, NGOs and corporations, but they need more to properly save the world. Crowdfunding is one step away from standing on the street corner with a sign, “Will work for science”.
Unlike wolves, horses do not wantonly kill and eat cattle, sheep, elk and other wildlife; however, they are native to America, and a national treasure of biodiversity. You will never hear any government land management group say, “Kill all the grey wolves.” So, what gives here? Where is the love for biodiversity?
