"Final Victory Over Disease?: Building Humanity's Extended Immune System" is the title of the second chapter of Ronald Bailey's Liberation Biology. There is precious little for the libertarian bioethicist to analyze from this book section for it primarily consists of a recitation of multiple promising gene and biologic therapy trials. Fortunately a few absurd comments from several bioethicists critical of such trials are provided by the author to maintain the interest of the LIBERTARIAN BIOETHICS BLOGger. Should we loathe or pity or fear the anti-human humans? Maybe all three emotions are appropriate.
