Bio-Luddite Nation

The latest Longevity Meme article is up - George Dvorsky's "Bio-Luddite Nation," a revision and reprint generously donated by the folks over at Betterhumans. "As the prospect of radical extension of the healthy human life span becomes more real with each passing year, prominent bio-Luddites have gone on the offensive to convince immortal wannabes that death is where it's at. They speak in a flowery and comforting tone, proclaiming that death defines our species and endows our lives with meaning, purpose and social stability." This article serves as a reminder of the dangers posed to the future of medical research, healthy and longevity by people like Leon Kass.
