Now these are area for consideration and there may be advantages but there will also be many disadvantages.
One of the main advantages will be that there is an ordered society, but the disadvantage is who creates the order and who will monitor it.
Society values change from time to time and when this occurs would there have to be widespread rewiring or reprogramming. and who will decide when, where and how.
Is this not the Big Brother of Orwell’s 1984.
Will this only be occurring within the UK or all over the World and if the latter, what about the different perceptions of Society in each individual country. Then if this is so what would occur when people visit from other countries where the aspects of Society differ from the country they are coming to.
On the face of it rewiring and reprogramming is the ideal, but when taking into account the practicalities, then may be not.
It is also open to abuse from anyone within the ruling classes.
In effect is there not an option at the moment with the rewiring and reprogramming substituted by some forms of medication.
Lastly, would any of us wish to be, within an environment, where everyone would be the same as the next person, surely our individual differences bring enlightenment to all our lives.
All behaviour is either learnt or innate.
There is no such thing as evil. That religious concept went out with the death of the Devil (another human invention).
That does not mean that people do not do ‘evil’ things. They do. We all have the innate behavioural pathways to do cruel, hateful, callous and nasty things.
But most of us don’t. Should the ones who do be punished?
Either their behaviour is the result of being damaged by their horrible experiences, of being taught badly, or of an innate character flaw. Whatever the cause it is down to bad wiring in the brain and bad brain chemistry.
What has been learnt can be unlearnt, wiring can be rewired, chemistry imbalances can be corrected.
In future when we have understood the functioning and biochemistry of the brain a lot better, rather than punish someone for bad behaviour all that will be…
