Science fiction often portrays dystopian scenarios of the future, often involving repression of the human race by machines. In this article I argue that taking these warnings seriously might not be a bad idea. Science fiction reflects a lot of the mentality of its makers and society in general, and often builds and comments on existing societal issues.

This article quite vividly illustrates why I believe that powerful nano-info-bio-cogno (NBIC) technologies in combination with a primitive mentality which finds violence acceptable and desirable as means of solving problems can result in destruction of a scale we're yet to witness.

I truly hope that we can, somehow, limit the destructive uses of such technologies and in the mean time help human beings evolve mentally and morally beyond this quite pathetic level.
