Is "seduced" a good word? Sometimes I talk to people the possibility
of a human future in cyberspace and they are horrified. I counter that
no-one will be forced but instead they will undergo the change
voluntarily, because once they understand it or experience it they
will see its advantages. Comes the reply: "So people won't be forced,
they'll be seduced! That's just as bad!"
