Maps out four different scenarios for the biopolitical future between 2007-2021. The scenarios are: Libertarian, Transhumanism, Triumphs, both left- and right-libertarian values prevail. One Family, One Future, communitarian values grounded in quasi-religious solidarity and patriarchy prevail. A Techno-Eugenic Arms Race, a lethal mix of communitarian nationalism and libertarian techno-capitalism spins out of control. The scenario For the Common Good is grounded in communitarian values of the sort historically associated with social democracy and liberal internationalism.
