What restrictions would be placed on science?
Where would science cross the moral line under this new system? As you probably already know, the current government is holding back several new and practically uncharted areas of science that could be key to solving many of the world’s problems (genetic engineering, cloning, etc.) with laws and other restrictions. One reason they are holding these kinds of things back is because it does not seem right to them, but another reason is that they are afraid of it, and with good reason. If something were to go wrong while scientists were altering corn to be more drought-tolerant, humans could be affected and possibly killed. So would it be worth the risk under this new system? What restrictions would there be on science to protect the minds and bodies of the human race? Would we be willing to take a chance to gain more knowledge than we have in centuries and improve humankind in the process? Where would the restrictions on science begin under a free community?Filed under: Science & Tech
