HE WORLD FUTURE SOCIETY will be holding its annual conference later this month. That has me worried.
One of the subjects of this year's conference is "the golden era of nanotechnology."
At a prior conference, scientists and futurists discussed how advances in nanotechnology, as well as cell and gene manipulation, could allow humans to live a long time -- anywhere from 120 to 180 years, and maybe even to 500.
Do we really want to live that long? Do we really want baby boomers, who are now beginning to retire, to vote government benefits for themselves for several hundred years?
