    1. We want better children—but not by turning procreation into manufacture or by altering their brains to gain them an edge over their peers. We want to perform better in the activities of life—but not by becoming mere creatures of our chemists or by turning ourselves into tools designed to win or achieve in inhuman ways. We want longer lives—but not at the cost of living carelessly or shallowly with diminished aspiration for living well, and not by becoming people so obsessed with our own longevity that we care little about the next generations. We want to be happy—but not because of a drug that gives us happy feelings without the real loves, attachments, and achievements that are essential for true human flourishing.

      This paragraph draw my attention. It is a important notice for this and the future generation. There are so many things that we are wondering and fight for but there are some temptation and wrong expectation in our world. i think that people really need to think about what are they wondering, such as happiness, career, family. after we recognize what we want then we need to figure out the right way to achieve our goal.

If what you have to say is profound or worth the time, you will get your viewers. You can do this without stupid titles...

    1. Can it also rest in the opinions themselves? Meaning can the forming of opinions count as learning and knowledge? Or must one learn and obtain knowledge only from opinions that differ from their own?
