'When it's time to railroad.......'

I think thoughtful people are awakening to the possibilities (inevitability's?) of our technology.

As an aside, I'm a bit confused by two aspects of the current list activity, the G*N flamewar and the (thankfully short lived) race flamewar.
With most list members actively planning to entirely leave the range of normal variability of our entire _species_ what possible difference does race make.
And, as we discuss technologies that we confidently expect will empower individuals in areas that only nation states currently walk why is there debate over hand g*ns?

Ban me if you will but I think these are valid questions with implications that should be thought provoking though not flame provoking.
