Military Must Prep Now for ‘Mutant’ Future, Researchers Warn … The U.S. military is already using, or fast developing, a wide range of technologies meant to give troops what California Polytechnic State University researcher Patrick Lin calls “mutant powers.” Greater strength and endurance. Superior cognition. Better teamwork. Fearlessness. But the risk, ethics and policy issues arising out of these so-called “military human enhancements” — including drugs, special nutrition, electroshock, gene therapy and robotic implants and prostheses — are poorly understood. – Wired
Dominant Social Theme: Mutant soldiers are the next step in spreading freedom around the world.
Free-Market Analysis: We stand in awe of yet another dominant social theme, which has to do with the inevitability of human engineering and eventual merger with machines.
But please! … This cannot be done by just anyone. People generally are not clamoring to be turned into quasi-robots, so who could possibly be behind such a strange idea?
Well, as this article points out, the military-industrial complex surely thinks it is a good idea.
This is perhaps a subdominant social theme: that only the regnant state itself with virtually unlimited resources and the service of the world’s best minds can create the next step of humankind’s inevitable evolution.
In fact, this is part of a larger power elite ambition, which is apparently first to cull the human population of its useless eaters and then to create super-beings (under strict control) with what’s left.
