China and France are said to be developing biologically improved super soldiers that can be “bred to kill.” As the New York Post reports, France made the decision barely a week ago to begin the process of creating augmented soldiers who would improve “physical and cognitive”. , the perceptual and psychological capacities of the people chosen for this project. Additionally, it would allow “location tracking or connectivity to weapon systems and other soldiers.” The ministry’s research also looks at drugs to keep soldiers awake longer and the potential for surgery to improve the soldier’s hearing. These augmented soldiers, nicknamed “homo robocopus”, may also have “modified DNA to give them increased speed and strength as well as robotics.”

Michael Clarke, visiting professor of war studies at Kings College London, told The Sun how this process is similar to “using DNA like a farmer would do in a herd of cattle.”
“We’ve now reached the point where we could potentially manipulate people’s DNA to give them more strength, stamina and other things, just like we do with animals,” Clarke said. “Just like we did with standard cattle to give them more back, we can now do it very precisely with humans.”

As for China, members of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army are “subjected to science-fiction-type human tests to create” biologically enhanced “super soldiers.John Ratcliffe, the director of national intelligence, discussed it in a Wall Street Journal editorial, saying it was part of China’s plan to take control of “the planet economically, militarily and technologically.”

According to The Sun, some of the specific technologies being worked on are brain microchips, bionic eyes, super hearing, health implants, enhanced limbs, exoskeleton legs, synthetic blood, and pain immunity. .

Hopefully, this push towards super soldiers doesn’t set us on the path to destruction like it may have for the extraterrestrial civilizations that have been destroyed by progress.
