Will it be necessary to create a new and better kind of human for any real progress to be made?
I see so many times where freedom and decency collide. If people are free, they are going to do indecent things. At this point in the evolution of our world we complain about overpopulation, but think it horrendous that we should prevent people from having children. That's one simple example. And taking away people's freedom is often seen as the most indecent thing we can do anyway.
