Inbred monsters rule the world .. Intelligence Squared: Experts look towards 2050
Reading through Alan’s archived articles I came across this one, I clicked on the link and on the site of the Oxford gang’s expert think tank scum I discovered that they have planned an event for next September, Intelligence Squared: Experts look towards 2050.
I think you should let them know what you think ….

Translation: The monsters who are manipulating us now wish to hire an in-bred monster with the qualifications necessary to plan a race of stronger, more long lived Frankensteins in order to serve the elite better. This upcoming race of genetically manipulated servants will be called the Borg, very efficient when they act together, but that annoying trait of individuality will be obliterated. Applicants must be fully fledged eccentric psychopaths with no ethics whatsoever with regards to sanctity of life, and abhor the phrase “Live and let live.”
P.S. A background in the genetic modification of killer viruses would be an asset. Must be able to say the most horrendous things in a disguised user-friendly fashion.
Intelligence Squared: Experts look towards 2050
Published on: 01 Jul 2009
In an exciting new partnership, the 21st Century School is collaborating with Intelligence Squared, an influential and provocative London debating forum, to hold a panel discussion entitled, “The World in 2050”. The event will bring together 21st Century School academics at the cutting edge of their field for a fascinating evening of lively discussion and debate on some of the biggest questions facing humankind.
These experts will reveal just how much we already know about what the world will look like in 2050, asking questions such as: Will we still be a fossil fuel civilisation? What societal changes will we see once half the world’s population is over 50? Will we be able to slow, or even halt, the ageing process itself? Will genetic enhancements to improve intelligence or resistance to disease be widespread?
The evening’s discussions will be chaired by Jack Klaff, a former professor of the public understanding of science at Starlab in Brussels, and an actor, writer and director. Panellists include:
- Dr Ian Goldin, 21st Century School Director
- Dr Malcolm McCulloch, Institute for Carbon and Energy Reduction in Transport.
- Professor Sarah Harper, Oxford Institute of Ageing.
- Professor Julian Savulescu, Programme on Ethics of the New Biosciences
The World in 2050 takes place on Tuesday 22 September, at the Royal Geographical Society, London. Doors open at 6:15 pm. The discussion starts at 6:45 pm and finishes at 8:30 pm. Tickets cost £25 each and can be purchased from Intelligence Squared.
