Let us say that, as I already had the opportunity to remark in Biopolitica.
Il nuovo paradigma <http://www.biopolitica.it>, there are obscurantisms that
are more obscure than others... :-)

The truth is that the only way to stop really technoscientific development
is to enforce a world ban, and while this appears to be difficult enough for
nuclear technology in spite of the popular scare for global destruction and
the converging interests of the nuclear club's members, its real
implementation for bio research would require a level of omnipresent control
that would make *1984* a joke, *pace* Kass and Fukuyama.
