A Future Political Framework for Moral Enhancement
Various kinds of human bioenhancement represent a major topic of contention in both bioethics and futures studies. Moral enhancement is one of them. It will be argued that voluntary moral bio-enhancement (and other types of moral enhancement) should be based on an opt out moral (bio)enhancement scheme. Such a scheme would avoid the challenges of a voluntary moral (bio)enhancement opt in scheme. The former has a proper place in a minimal state. It will be explained why such a state can be called Utopia. The concept of voluntary opt out moral (bio-)enhancement in Utopia will be highlighted in detail.
