Here come the designer babies. If you think the wealth gap is bad now, wait until all the elites start genetically modifying their offspring to run faster and jump higher than your kids…Talk about a breakaway civilization.

A team from China grabbed the headlines last month when it announced it had edited DNA in the nucleus of human embryos. Whatever the ethics of such research, the breakthrough raises the question of just how far we will take tampering with our genetic make-up?
The Chinese team’s work was done using a gene-editing technique called CRISPR (pronounced “crisper”) and the results were not spectacular – only four of the 86 eggs injected were successfully modified.
Nonetheless, Harvard Professor George Church believes that within five to seven years it will be possible to snip out and replace stretches of DNA to genetically engineer babies.
But should this kind of research be done at all?
Considering the group of psychopathic technocrat eugenicists who run things in this world and who don’t even want most of us to have any more babies at all to begin with, what do you think the answer to that question is?
Better watch the movie [amazon text=Gattaca&asin=B000I8G5B2] now for a refresher course on what our (very near) future is about to look like.
