"We used to think that secrecy was perhaps the greatest enemy of democracy, and as long as there was no suppression or censorship, people could be
trusted to make the informed decisions that would preserve our free society, but we have learned in recent years that the techniques of misinformation

to die, and then dies having never really lived."
"Homo sapiens, the first truly free species, are about to decommission natural selection, the force that made us.... Soon we must look deep within
ourselves and decide what we wish to become."
-Edward O. Wilson
