When it comes to science, and getting accessibility to any nifty new Knowledge, I can be any darned percentage I want to be so long as I get access to
the papers published on the how-to.
I'll shake and bake up my own modifications if I have to.
I guarantee you it'll be like illegal drugs if tailored gene-mods are proven effective but made illegal, even if gene mods are simply aesthetic, like
changing one's brown eyes blue, altering racial skin color, or hair color/type
How-tos, Faqs, and White papers will get writ.
Another-other new and updated anarchist's cookbook will get published with details on setting up your own lab for gene mods.
The information will get put online, or get circulated through other means.
If it's universally condemned and squashed in USA, you can bet someone, somewhere in some rogue little country will get their grubby little paws on
it and start building super soldiers.
As controlled substance/knowledge, the only manageable methodology for controlling such tech would be to regulate it where the eager, stupid easily
distracted moronic public will get dazzled with trendy, but basically useless gene-mods like bioluminescence, and other simple aesthetic mods compared
to mil-tech-spec super reflexes, or anything else that could be classified as mil or LEO.
