By eliminating empathy, DoD hopes to “enhance” a soldier’s ability to “kill without care or remorse

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has a $2 billion yearly budget for research into creating a super solider as well as developing a synthetic police force. Working with the human genome, DARPA hopes to manipulate certain gene expressions. In experimentation, DARPA and the military industrial pharmaceutical complex are using natural abilities that are enhanced through genetic engineering.

Some of the medical feats DARPA would like to enhance are the ability of military soldiers to regrow limbs destroyed in battle.

By eliminating empathy, the Department of Defense (DoD) hopes to “enhance” a soldier’s ability to “kill without care or remorse, shows no fear, can fight battle after battle without fatigue and generally behave more like a machine than a man.”

Scientists are researching the construction of soldiers that feel no pain, terror and do not suffer from fatigue as tests on the wiring of the human brain are furthered by Jonathan Moreno, professor of bioethics at Pennsylvania State University. Moreno is working with the DoD in understanding neuroscience. The Pentagon allocated $400 million to this research.

Further study could be passed onto the general public in order to maximize profits as well as enhance the drug’s effectiveness. According to Joel Garreau, professor at Arizona University, DARPA is learning how to genetically modify human fat into pure energy by rewiring the metabolic switch which would create soldiers that require less food. By using gene therapy and combining enhancements to alter the color of the human eye is a blending of mutations that have no basis in the natural world.

if nothing else

they'll be suited for congress.

Nice burn.

I have no idea if this is

I have no idea if this is real or not but it's essentially saying let's create psychopath soldiers! This is crazy talk. Guess it would take a few psychopaths to think of something like this.

This reminds me of the stories about the end of Atlantis.

They too were into gene manipulation and creating a worker type of human that was strong but not too intelligent. It is an abomination, an UN-evolved approach to life where war and conflict is more important than peace.

WHY are we preparing to continue KILLING instead of pursuing PEACE among the people of the world!? What twisted thinking has arrived at this?

Since when is a human merely something to be "enhanced" for a specific use by the ruling elite!?

Genome Solders

But what I'm thinking is that they want to create soldiers from Metal Gear Solid. Next it will be nano-machines- Kinda disturbing...

Hey Dumbasses just use any Standard prescription Anti-depressant

The Drug industry is way...ahead of the pentagon in this matter.

They've already done this to millions in society.
