Dystopian leanings

An excellent, if not rather pessimistic, view of the global social future by a panel of sci-fi writers. Unfortunately, I am not too much in disagreement.

Most notable point: The Have/Have-not gap has gotten so wide that education and life span disparities have initiated a sort of Darwinian speciation. A trend that the availability of genetic and other high-tech medical therapies to the rich will only accelerate.
