When the latest “must see” movie hits the theaters and it features mutated or otherwise augmented warriors, many will flock to see it and, when it concludes, think no more of it. Why, to actually believe in such a nonsensical fantasy is the practice of only those who are not all there in the head, right? Well, world leaders are now starting to warn us that, like many times prior, Hollywood was not just telling a story.
The Sun confirms that Russian President Vladimir Putin has said that warriors genetically modified could be “worse than a nuclear bomb” in the not so distant future. Some say that the Russian leader sounded like he was talking about the 1992 movie “Universal Soldier” when he spoke of them being bred with no “pain or fear” while speaking to students.
It is so frightening of a prospect that the word “scared” was actually used to describe how Putin appeared as he talked about it. “Scared” is a NOT a word that is ever used to describe the bold Russian and it should not be overlooked in any way.
Putin warned that mankind is close to breaking the genetic code and once that is done, nefarious types will create “a human with pre-designed characteristics.”
“A man has the opportunity to get into the genetic code created by either nature, or as religious people would say, by the God,” the former KGB agent said. With a past such as he has had, when Putin speaks on such matters, it is not just hyperbole or loose talk.
“All kinds of practical consequences may follow. One may imagine that a man can create a man not only theoretically but also practically,” he added cryptically.
“He can be a genius mathematician, a brilliant musician or a soldier, a man who can fight without fear, compassion, regret or pain,” Putin said to anyone who would heed his words. “As you understand, humanity can enter, and most likely it will in the near future, a very difficult and very responsible period of its existence.”
“What I have just described might be worse than a nuclear bomb,” Putin also proclaimed.
Let us imagine what would become of us who were born “normal” in the event that designer people can be created. This would divide us and make us more inhumane than we are even currently. Likey, those born without such enhancements may seem obsolete and looked at like cattle.
“When we do something, whatever we do, I want to reiterate it again – we must never forget about the ethical foundations of our work,” the Russian added as he implored leaders to reach an agreement on the matter that favors humanity.
The leader was mocked when he warned that robots could one day feast upon human flesh, but what better way to kill a large number of people when the “need” arises than to simply have the machines destroy us? Having them weapons would be a needless expense if the machine was made correctly.
Some may say that the Russian leader is half out of his mind. Perhaps. If so and only half of what he says is correct, that is still terrifying. Therefore, maybe we should listen to what he is saying on the topic no matter what we may think of the man himself.
