Building to Break
Science. It has propelled the human race forward for thousands of years. While we have bettered our lives in some aspects, there has been a heavy toll to pay in others. Biotechnology is being used by corporate and political interest in the most self-destructive drive for profit in all of history. It is only our species that works against itself by using the very progress it creates. It is only us who build with one hand and break with the other. There is a union of science and human progress, but where is the union of science and preservation? With corporations deciding the evolutionary fate of human health and longevity, is biotech really change for the better or is it the beginning of the end?
