No word on whether Lux is undertaking Drexlerian nanobot research.

Yep, things are getting better. We don't need artificial controversies.

BTW, take a look at the Proaction Principle. It's about time we countered this meme.

Er, that is the "Precautionary Principle" meme.

I'm assuming that the Precautionary Principle/Proactionary Principle controversy is "real." I wouldn't want to be wasting my time on any more "artificial" controversies.

By the way, I commented on that "Proactionary Principle" post several days ago.

Oops. Didn't see your comments. Sorry about that.

It appears to me that there's a significant propaganda effort to philosophically rationalize Ludditism. The Precautionary Principle shows up all the time in politics. For example, here's a quick Google search on the term in recent news stories (54 not necessarily distinct occurances by my count). But this includes applying the precautionary principle to government laws and regulations.

For example, EMF thresholds have been reduced in the UK due to "uncertainty" with the Precautionary Principle explicitly cited as a reason for doing so.
