"An ethical response to the implications of the emerging
biotechnology project…has been hobbled by misdirection,
conceptual impoverishment, and the failure to identify the
most fundamental nature of the moral, and ultimately political,
challenges posed. Neither side in the biotechnology debate
so far has grasped that a new form of power has arisen and
with it a new form of the quintessentially 'political' question
of how to tame - to civilize - power."
