Technological revolutions are like political revolutions, often generating de facto freedoms that states were not formerly compelled to accept. On that topic, the Catalyst Thesis of 2013 states, “Technologies carrying incredible capabilities are rapidly being miniaturised and acquiring the democratic feature of being potentially circulated to everyone for ‘DIY’ ends. Consider “biohacking”, as promoted by Ellen Jorgensen who hopes for a future in which biotechnology is fully democratized for the common user just like personal computing. If such a development was to grow and bring uplifting political and economic effects by being shared in impoverished countries, then the result would certainly be technology-powered liberation. Consider the different technological opportunities that exist, and if they create radical options to empower the people. http://www.clubof.info/p/catalyst.html
