Anarchy Regional Message Board
To be fair, preventing the rich from using technological means to force the poor into perpetual rent on the ability to eat isnt really "restriction" so much as "liberation."
Sort of how forbiding, or actively interveining to prevent, me from bashing that guy (**points**) in the face with a brick and taking all his stuff isnt really a "restriction" either.
Like a "Free Genome Foundation?" Noice.
Still see plenty of opposition in the "unfair competition/MAH PROFITS!!!! 1!! 1!" direction. Thats what I like about the ban V-GURT approach - it leaves T-GURT alone to keep biotech happy (which "Stopping Suicide Seeds" didnt do).
Although the "ban" approach still leaves the poor out in the cold re: value-added traits.
Perhaps both resolutions playing tag-team? Ban V-GURT to abolish exploitative rents, and the Free Genome Foundation to give icky closed-source T-GURT seed some fair market competition?

I just recently finished reading A Brave New World after my english professor recommended it, and i couldn't help but notice some very frightening similarities to our current society. Everyone is afraid of the future prophesied by Orwell in 1984, but Huxley's prediction is far closer to the truth.
Make sure to read Revisited too. Huxley discusses everything he got wrong. Then read Island, which he wrote as his own response to himself.
I think our world is a mashup of both dystopias.
I agree that from within the relatively privileged confines of the OECD countries, contemporary life looks very much like Huxley's vision of narcotized tranquilized high tech consumerism.
Outside those places, the world looks very much like the perpetual war described in Brave New World with a never ending "war on terror", drone raids, invasions, terrorist bombings and counter terrorism and counter insurgency campaigns. The West has always been at war with ISIS, etc.

If yall would excuse my newbishness - what exactly do endorsements do?
"...disadvantaged neighbourhoods have become no-go areas after sundown. Crime is totally unknown."
Crime is considered so bad here, literally no one actually does it! :D
