. He wants to judge each discovery as "good" or "bad", then reward or punish the engineers, scientists, and the craftsmen for whatever results.
Sad as it is, I prefer the world we have, in which men and woman exercise free will.
Engineers do not 'discover', that is done by scientists, in the true sense and some other groups of thinkers. Engineers are one of the classes of people who use a known technology to a predictable outcome (others are the craftsmen that you refer to, among others). Engineers design, in the way a house builder may design a brick structure. As such they should be held accountable for the ethical consequences of what they do. Like everyone else should be. You exercise free will, you are also free to suffer the consequences. You seem to want free will without the consequences.
