Recent progress in technology has put an ideal future well within the reach of mankind.
That is, if we can find the will and intelligence to properly accelerate and deploy these newly developed capabilities.
The technologies involved include (but are not limited to) Nanotech, Biotech, Infotech, and one you will be hearing more about, Cogtech. We now have an unprecedented command of nature and natural resources.
What then prevents us from moving into the utopia this should imply?
