“As citizens of this republic, we are allowed to not believe in God, but we all should believe in democracy. When we set out to make the rich smarter and stronger than the poor by offering to the wealthy these expensive drugs and genetic alterations, we undermine democracy. I have always thought that the size of a person’s income did not tell me about his IQ, but that will soon no longer be the case …” (Richard A Clarke, in Breakpoint)
