Behavioral Modification: What You Need to Know
Magnetic fields remotely control cells, and scientists have been experimenting with the control of religious feelings.
Digital vaccines have been specifically designed to change behavior with specific software.
This story is about behavioral modification, both as a philosophical ambition and as a military application. This topic is vast — so I'll focus on a few relatively recent developments, especially in the area of magnetogenetics. But first, morality pills!
By Dr. Mercola
In August 2020, Forbes published an article titled, "Could A 'Morality Pill' Help Stop The Covid-19 Pandemic?" It was based on the opinion of a bioethicist Parker Crutchfield who stated the following:
"Moral enhancement is the use of substances to make you more moral. The psychoactive substances act on your ability to reason about what the right thing to do is, or your ability to be empathetic or altruistic or cooperative."
The problem that Crutchfield was trying to solve with his theoretical 'morality pills' was the pesky COVID contrarians, the proverbial grandma killers who refused to comply with masking and social distancing.
"The problem of coronavirus defectors could be solved by moral enhancement: like receiving a vaccine to beef up your immune system, people could take a substance to boost their cooperative, pro-social behavior."
The author seemed to think very highly of his own ability to make perfect decisions about things — including about the best pandemic response — and therefore he had no qualms about imposing his opinions on others in the form of pills or, perhaps, morality injections. He went as far as to say that "a solution would be to make moral enhancement compulsory or administer it secretly, perhaps via the water supply."
Crutchfield further referred to his work, in which he explored the concept of enhancing democracy by secretly medicating the citizens. He stated the following:
"Some theorists argue that moral bioenhancement ought to be compulsory. I take this argument one step further, arguing that if moral bioenhancement ought to be compulsory, then its administration ought to be covert rather than overt. This is to say that it is morally preferable for compulsory moral bioenhancement to be administered without the recipients knowing that they are receiving the enhancement.
My argument for this is that if moral bioenhancement ought to be compulsory, then its administration is a matter of public health, and for this reason should be governed by public health ethics.
I argue that the covert administration of a compulsory moral bioenhancement program better conforms to public health ethics than does an overt compulsory program. In particular, a covert compulsory program promotes values such as liberty, utility, equality, and autonomy better than an overt program does. [emphasis mine]."
Bravissimo! Does this combo of freedom and covertly administered forced medication come with DeBlasio fries?
