Now what came to my mind instantly was a most dangerous scenario: making a 
church out of transhumanism. Building a vast system of humbug around 
technology. Hm, have you played Syndicate Wars? There the Church of the New 
Epoch does something like that. Not as if Eurocorp were any better. 
Ownership of technology might entitle the few to oppress the many, once 
again in human history. Not an alternative to have when we so value 
democracy (and would like to bring about a better humanity).

Eh, what are you referring to here? Sorry, I don't understand.
