Why?

(And why does "choice" seem to be the ultimate value in your worldview?)


Why?  Because quality of life would be vastly improved if common ailments were eliminated.

This is specious, and you know it. It would possibly eliminate some of the dirty details of life, but you'll never be able to prevent against hate, intolerance, stupidity, natural disaster, violence, war, new and exciting diseases, and religion.

Choice?  Give me a better value and I'll take it for a ride.


Some nice blend of civility, tolerance, and equality. Choice is a nice value, to be sure, and necessarily built into the concept of freedom, but I'd limit freedoms and the choices that come with them for my suggestions.

Could you please explain why we shouldn't use genetic technologies to prevent cancer or other serious ailments?

Capitalism, classism, homogenity...the typical scare and slippery slope arguments.

How much engineering are we talking here?

Let's innoculate ourselves against HIV, cancer, diabetes, the flu, heart disease, high cholesterol, bad tempers, fair skin, dark skin, poor eyesight, acne, obesity, a bad nose, small unmentionables, small pen-s, lack of athletic ability, shortness, lack of intellectual ability, poor libido, a hairy back, a third nipple.

Would this be required by govenment, or available for a price?

F-cking ridiculous.

In my perfect world?  All of the above would be available to anyone who choosing to make use of it.

Why?
