My point from my last post was how would society react when full-conversion cyborgs are available to the military and public. People might react
negatively towards full-conversion cyborgs. It all depends on how society reacts with the culture shock. With cybertechnology, fear-mongerers might
feed off on it. Ethical and moral debates will cause tension. Of course, corporations will just throw money at politicians via lobbyists where any
sanctioned laws will barely matter.

Good points there, nine. To continue my discussion with johnsky, any restrictions may get shot down by those who vote (the elder). The elderly may
embrace cybertechnology if longer, stronger life is within reach.
The level of advancement is a big factor for me to determine my cost-benefit ratio. If the technology is slow as Robocop, I'd probably say no and
wait. But if technology was equivalent to or near human-like motion, then I'm there. Just make sure I get the extra bells and whistles -- enhanced
eyes with video recording, enhanced ears with filter feature, chemical analyzer on tongue, lungs with filtration unit, smart-gun link with tactical
computer, GPS, computer-enhanced brain, etc.... Sorry, let a man dream.
