Your life in their hands OR Their hands in your life?

#1 Postby pantodragon » December 9th, 2013, 4:16 pm

A geneticist was a guest on the radio this morning. She described the outcome of her research: that genetics can be used to assess and map any person’s abilities and talents and aptitudes. This information will then be used as a means of prescribing the course of education to be received by every child.

In the tradition of Blade Runner: "Special police squads - BLADE RUNNER UNITS - had orders to shoot to kill, upon detection, any trespassing Replicant. This was not called execution. It was called retirement."……………….

…………this genetic innovation is not described as taking control of and micro-managing a child’s life and future; it is described as providing a child with a bespoke education.
