Right spot on, precisely so, yes indeed, because science can tell us what we can do, and biological cues tell us what we ought to do. Combining the "what" with the "why" (and, btw, thanks to everyone who contributed input from both directions), provides a solid basis from which to make policy decisions. The time has come to replace moralism ("Cultural Studies" arrogates the postmodernist subset of that dreary subject) with scientific decision making based on real life needs.
