The Naval Research Laboratory has too many Technocrats with too much time on their hands. Still, this project points out that genetic modification is going on in every possible environment on the earth. What could go wrong?
Apparently He Jiankui is out of favor with Chinese Technocrats, since he has abruptly gone missing with rumors of his arrest. China seldom openly reveals outright and purposeful disappearances.
Nobody likes mosquitos but ordering their extinction gives Technocrat-minded scientists all kinds of ideas on how to best use technology on how to do it. Worse, Alaphabet, Inc. (owns Google) is leading the charge.
Proving that all scientists are not Technocrats, many have condemned He Jiankui for introducing gene modifications into the human germline, meaning his changes will perpetuate to succeeding generations.
On the surface of it, this is a health breakthrough that could potentially save hundreds of thousands of cancer victims. However, the technology has very dangerous applications in the wrong hands.
Obama likened his BRAIN initiative to mapping the human genome. With DNA hacking taking place throughout the world’s science labs, will mind hacking be next? Once the human mind and body can be controlled, will Technocrat scientists not rise up to do so?
Nation-states would hesitate to use GMO viruses because of the ‘mutually assured destruction’ doctrine. However, any number of small groups of radical terrorists would not hesitate to release a plague on mankind. Technocrats have myopic vision when it comes to GMO technology.
Electronic security is almost never a forethought with a new technology project, and then becomes platitudes and assurances after it is done. The Technocrat mindset doesn’t value humans any higher than herd animals. Citizens must live with no expectation of absolute electronic security.
Technocrat-minded scientists, with their rudimentary editing tools for DNA, are moving closer and closer to gaining free and legal access to the seeds of life. This is an encouragement for Transhumanists who want to reengineer DNA for Humanity 2.0.
A vocal few who make sense and not chaos can work wonders in any setting. Pro-vaccine civil workers are left to continue their grousing about losing herd immunity due to lack of vaccinations. Who taught these people that humans are nothing more than a herd of animals in the first place?
