If the problems have been solved, then the world can rest in peace and
prosperity because socio-cultural quandaries of communication on a small
scale are the echo of socio-political predicaments on a far larger scale. 

I think your work is meaningful Bryan, but let's be honest.  There are
problems concerning transhumanism in the internal and external environments
which are affecting the progress on a larger scale.  These problems can
certainly be the result of a blooming movement which has to continually pick
it self back up from each fall in its maturation as it continues forward.
Often the reasons for the problems are key factors in isolating and
rectifying the issues; and sometimes they are only symptoms.  

I'm not convinced anyone has resolved any of the problems, although many
have certainly tried.  Further, yesterday's problematic issue may be
tomorrow solution. Life has a very interesting narrative which is often full
of surprises.

So, let's hold judgment until the facts are in.
