    [...]to cope with the moral problems created by the advance of scientific technology, it seems that we would have to change radically in a short time. [...]it is imperative that we investigate the possibility of moral enhancement by means of genetic and biomedical techniques, as well as conventional political and social reform. Research in this area, however, is still in its infancy, so it is too early to judge its prospects. [...]even if effective means of moral bioenhancement are discovered, there is the problem that these means must be administered by human beings who are morally imperfect and, thus, could be misapplied as other kinds of scientific technology have been.
