I am sure the individuals of this society have volumes of literature on the subject for those interested in the impacts on society;

Mutant 59: The Plastic Eater. It was a novelization of a British "X-Files"-ish program called "Doomwatch", season 1, episode 1.
Wow. Did you just know that off the top of your head? I'll have to look that up. As you can see, it was quite thought provoking for me to remember it 40 years later.



eta: A less dramatic but more plausible sort of germ-doom movie/book is "No Blade of Grass". Which actually almost happened, although you won't find any links to it.
A classic from doom porn's golden age. If I can find it, I think that'll be a good movie to watch when I've got some down time. So what's the story with "almost happened"?

I had a copy of the book as a kid, jr high I think. I didn't know it was from a TV series until a few years ago, when you reminded me of it I looked for it on Amazon et al with no luck. I bet it's on a torrent somewhere but didn't look.

That's a story. One too long to do on my phone. I'll try to remember to come back to it.

Evolution has already provided the human race with the best of all possible genetic combinations.
Sure, not ever one is perfect and there will always be suffering and sickness - that is the way the world works.
Thinking we can bypass evolution and create super humans by genetic tampering is another Frankenstein notion.
I don't doubt the elites already benefit from this technology, look at how old people like Soros, Rockefeller and Kissinger are yet they still seem to enjoy perfect health. Quite odd when most of the people I know have died of cancer well before their 90's.

Playing at God never works out to our benefit.
