Genetic Crossroads
July 9th, 2004

"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."

- Bruce Jennings, "The Liberalism of Life: Bioethics in the Face of Biopower," Raritan 22:4 (Spring 2003)
