It's right wing propganda. Unfortuntately I had hoped to hear a thoughtful discussion of the issues, presenting all sides and an unbiased view. What I heard was extremely biased opinions and statments that the CATO institute claimed to be fact, but did not match the facts published in such news sources as the New York Times, CNN, NPR and the Wall Street Journal. If you are a conservative who wishes to hear opinion that caters to your view, this audio subscription may be right for you. If you are middle of the road or liberal, or if you want unbiased information, look elsewhere.
Bill McKibben takes on the topic of genetic modification, nanotechnology and robotics and sets them contextually in the scheme of human development. He alleges that we are at the elbow of a geometric expansion of technology, and at the verge of taking a huge and dangerous step with the modification of not only human genetics but with the manipulation of all matter on earth. For those who are wondering if cloning is a good idea, if genetically "improving" humans is near at hand, and for those interested in having children, this is a must-read book and/or must-listen audiobook
