Let's Tell it Like it Is: Most Salaried Scientists Would be Complicit in Genocide

Most brains for hire are easily enough enticed or induced to commit genocide.

Oh, they're horrified by the term, of course, and it's totally unacceptable to ever use that term to describe what they are hired to do.

But if you tell them that they are the planet's only hope to be saved from a "population bomb" or a "global warming disaster of unprecedented magnitude" or that there will be global famine if they don't genetically engineer the soy beans and corn and gently hint that their careers will be affected if they don't cooperate - many of them will commit genocide.

There were people no less intelligent or moral than the average scientist-salary today who found themselves complicit in genocide just because they did what they were told and didn't want to be ostracized by colleagues - and when they are tried for genocide, saying: "I was only following orders" and "I had to feed my kids (Lobster Thermidor), just doesn't cut it.
