In the emotional wake of my rebutal to the CBC's
anti-cloning propaganda, I had a chilling thought.
What if all this opposition from the religious right
fanned by the rich arch-conservatives against
transhumanist ideas is just a red-herring? What if the
rich are just biding their time knowing that the
technology is nigh upon us and try to illegalize it
SPECIFICALLY so they can get access to it while the
proletariat can't? Like Cuban cigars. There will
always be someplace in the world where it could be
allowed and or hidden. The rich sure wouldn't have any
trouble either hearing about or traveling to it. Plus
medical costs right out of their pocket. Since
insurance won't pay for it . . . after all it is
illegal! Am I paranoid or did I show my hand too soon?
