Let's totally unplug all backwards theocracies from the internet.
Leaving them with only the propaganda permitted by said theocracies? What do you suppose would happen then, a sudden burst of enlightenment based on the same ideas that have made them "backwards" to begin with?
There's a reason tyrants block the flow of information. There is no greater threat to tyranny than the knowledge that people elsewhere are freer and happier than you are, and the information that explains how they got to be that way.
Gods I hope you were just being sarcastic and I missed it. I'm more than a little disturbed by the fact that you got an "insightful" mod for this.
How is this any different than the rampant and completely unsupervised genetic twiddling that has been happening in nature for the last few billion years?
It's very different. "Nature" takes existing sequences and changes them, seeing if they fit in with the rest of the existing organism and environment. The process is slow and competing sequences have an opportunity to try their own variations. Wholesale fabrication of an entire genome is several orders of magnitude more drastic.
