Remote-Controlled… People?

Sounds like every liberal’s dream, doesn’t it? Remotely “hack” someone’s brain to make him do what you want him to do.

Well, a team of “scientists,” whatever they are anymore, has managed to do just that: remotely control a brain to make the subject run, freeze in place, or lose control of his limbs (http://bgr.com/2017/08/18/brain-hack-science-limb-control/). But don’t worry–they only did it to a mouse. No one would dream of doing it to another human being.

Every utopian humanist dream fulfilled! Total obedience! No more trouble with the masses: they’ll just have to do as they’re told. Shoot, where’s Boris Karloff when you need him? And Peter Lorre? Can’t you just hear Lorre whispering, “Now, Mr. Patient, pick up the knife–yes, that’s right–and I will press this little button, and you will stab Mr. Greedy in the back, right between the shoulder-blades. I owe him a lot of money, you see…”

It’s all Jurassic Park. And just wait till the dinosaurs get loose.
