Our Posthuman Future: My Thoughts on the Book

I've been reading Francis Fukuyama's book Our Posthuman Future. While I don't much care his rightwing slant, he is a good and insightful writer, showing how our society's current use of drugs and other technologies have already allowed us to alter human nature. As he points out, we're in very dangerous territory since this has all been done according to the sort of knee-jerk desires of the marketplace. (Fukuyama, in spite of his right wing bonafides, is an advocate of much more government involvement in constraining our adventure in our posthuman future).
