I can't see that happening. Not any time soon. Whose moral code would it
use? If it is to be a global one, that means it would have to be
forcibly imposed on some people. I'd say that was morally wrong,
It would have to be agreed upon by everyone, and that's not going to
happen, because people have different values, often wildly different.
I suspect we wouldn't even be able to agree on a common moral code here
on this list, never mind among the population of the entire world (and
that's without even bringing religion into it).
