But bigger point: either don't fear biotech advances, or at least be equal
But they're not equal. Dystopian futures involving computers promise a future where we're ruled over by machines - which, might be more capable than we are. There is an element of coolness to robotic/computer overlords.
Biotech dystopian futures, on the other hand, promise a future where we're ruled over by humans who think they're more capable than we are (but probably aren't)....just like now. And there's nothing cool about being ruled over by a human...just like now.
Or perhaps, a utopian future where the amoral sociopaths aren't allowed to hold public office?
