The Tyranny of Freedom

“Your scientists were so obsessed with whether or not they could, they never stopped to ask whether nor not they should.”

Jeff Goldbloom’s character from Jurrasic Park.  

Question: Is it anti-science to ask what limits should placed upon the practices and projects of scientists?  

Another question: What if the corporate world and the world of science are the same world?  What then?

One more question: What if the new cutting edge of freedom is the freedom to happily submit to constraint?  

There is a kind of freedom that amounts to a rusty cage in dark corner.  The mature realize they need to be free from this kind of freedom.
