Hypothetically if we do cure death, who will be able to afford such a cure, and who would be worthy of such longevity?
The rich and the elites would no doubt deem themselves worthy, the poor not even in the running.
The product of a cure for death is dictators that never die, vampire elites growing their power and knowledge forever.
It is bad enough that money, power, networks and the knowledge of how to exploit and manipulate are passed down through the generations, with each becoming more disconnected from the realities of poverty, existing in a sociopathic bubble of disconnection.
Now you want to extend this inequality?
Death is healthy, it is necessary that new growth and evolution may happen.
If you want to extend peoples lives cure Work – that way we can actually enjoy what limited time we have. Curing death is such rich mans fantasy.
If you’re going to think big, great, but do it with a social conscience and an awareness of the resultant global impact. Cure drudgery, poverty, intolerance, violence. Things worth removing from the world.
