It already is. Soon there is nothing to do but pace back and forth in too small a space, waiting to die
That seems to be the direction most people want to go. They're very comfortable with their heads in the sand.
Hopefully it won't go that way though....
Time will tell how the people will react.
If they don't move to fix the problems we have, I'll be packing my bags.
Last thing to keep in mind, is that with technology like this, there's not much time left to fix this problem. Once they have the control they desire with technology, resistance of any sort will be a joke. Moore's Law aint helping.
If you're a scientist or programmer and you're helping develop more powerful technologies, could you start sniffing glue or something? We need to slow this down.
agree, i've said that for awhile that technology is growing too fast bc ethics and morals need to develop alongside it and that hasn't seemed to be the case.
where will you move to if you leave the USA?
BINGO! RIGHT ON!
Ethics and Morals are the key to all of this!
Imagine what it would (will?) be like when they develop tech to increase our mental performance, turning normal people into a kind of superhumans that can perform the tasks of 10 of their peers at once.
The problem with that scenario is not simply the difference of power between the "improved" humans and the soon-to-be-SUB-humans. The biggest problem in my mind is that experiential knowledge (wisdom) cannot be developed at the same rate as the tech will allow the rest of the brain to improve.
You'll have a shload of people with incredible power, but with the morals, ethics, and wisdom of infants.
What's the matter? Scared of infants? Infants got you on the run? Where are you going to run to...chester big boy?
"Ga ga goo goo?"Jeremiah 1
 Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.
 Then said I, Ah, Lord GOD! behold, I cannot speak: for I am a child.
 But the LORD said unto me, Say not, I am a child: for thou shalt go to all that I shall send thee, and whatsoever I command thee thou shalt speak.
 Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the LORD.
 Then the LORD put forth his hand, and touched my mouth. And the LORD said unto me, Behold, I have put my words in thy mouth.
 See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant.
