Frankenstein III: A Future Made For Nazis
No, this is not about Frankenstein, or even Frankenstein Junior. This is about the nephew, Frankenstein III.
This is about the many Frankensteins (of sort) about to be genetically engineered in the brave new world of godless stupidity, as voted a couple of days ago by the same British Parliament which already gave us the so-called same-sex marriage.
The new Frankensteins (of sort) will be born with the greatest (attempt at?) DNA manipulation ever devised: the manipulation of human DNA. All in the interest of Progress, of course.
I have three problems with that as per today. Who knows how many others will pop in.
1) Embryos will be destroyed to “donate” the desired DNA parts. That’s a life that gets killed. In the logic of God-given creation it is not really different from murdering someone so that his liver may save the life of another.
A human embryo is a human life. But hey, it’s a tiny one so it doesn’t count, and we will be able to make a lot of noise about “the lives that will be saved”. After all, we legally murder perfectly formed babies in the womb, what’s an embryo? Still, do not be deceived: a life is killed so that another life may live. Life begins at conception.
2) The entire exercise seems to me an exercise in hubris, a disaster waiting to happen. All those who complain about the danger of gen-manipulated soya or mais (and many of the finest liberal minds are fiercely opposed to it) should explain to us how they see the danger of DNA manipulation. But hey, I am not a doctor, so take this as simply the reflection of someone who thinks you shouldn’t play God, because it’s going to haunt you. I merely observe that if in one or five generations it should turned out that the DNA exacts a late revenge for playing God with it, there might be more lives lost than the ones meant to be saved now.
3) I can see a future with very clear Nazi undertones (no, not talking of abortion or euthanasia), in that the manipulations initially made to “save lives” are then unavoidably used to produce aesthetically more desirable specimens. It can, actually, get much worse than that, as I will explain below. I cannot avoid seeing a huge disaster at the end of this road, and I say this irrespective of religious beliefs. It’s like wanting to build a Babel Tower using dynamite sticks as bricks, because you have been told dynamite bricks are very safe if no explosion occurs.
All very unscientific, you will say. Yeah. Common sense, rather. I call it “using one’s brain”
The slippery slope will now take its course. As for divorce, abortion, and more recently euthanasia, once the collective consciousness has accepted the breaking of the first barrier more and more barriers will be broken; they will have to, because the stupid population of Babel will demand a blue-eyed daughter as they demanded abortion for the asking.
Then there are the social implications. A people of Uebermenschen will look with barely hidden contempt at the Untermenschen that have not been “improved”: at the weaker, uglier, less resistent brethren. They will look at them as to an inferior race. The pressure to “improve” one’s children will grow. Nazi Nanny might well make it compulsory. A huge mess in a largely atheist world.
Then there are – probably the most disquieting aspect – the military implications, with some Countries rushing to create a DNA of warriors better fit for fatigue and combat and, most importantly, more resistant to disease. When they are strong enough, the bacteriological annihilation of the non-genetically manipulated populations through germs to which the Uebermenschen are resistant will be within easy reach. Most people of the pre-Columbian “Civilisations” died not in battle, but because of the germs brought to them by the horses, the mules, and the men from Europe. Go figure what will be possible when true military energy, not a casual encounter of Civilisations, is applied to it.
I wonder how Dr Mengele and his would have welcomed this news. With boundless enthusiasm, I suppose.
Think of the Nazi possibilities!
I cannot but think that Hitler is getting a big posthumous revenge, and the future world is going to become very similar to him. All this, of course, in the pursuit of Progress and because of the adoration of the new idol, Man.
