2284 World Society

Iaian Vernier's Memoir

Seymour W. Itzkoff

2284: World Society, Iaian Vernier’s Memoir is a fascinating study of mankind. Written as a work of fiction, it looks at the human condition 200 years in the future. Predicting the outcome of today’s social policies, 2284 is a cultural anthropology study that adds to Itzkoff’s extensive writing on the topic. Iaian Vernier writes in 2284 of the revolutionary internationalism that has been established in Nairobi, Africa. He chronicles the disasters that almost destroyed the twenty-first-century world. He describes in anecdote and philosophical depth the new scientific and secular world that has been established to bring peace, equality, ethnic diversity and democracy to humanity, while scrutinizing the plans for demographic stability that will sustain humanity into the future. In the twenty-third century, the forbidden rationality of the scientific minds of the twenty-first century have been unleashed.

I paraphrase:

You are showing us different sample vials of genetic material from various national and ethnic sources that you intend to infuse into very different ethnic and national locales as an experiment, I presume. Why not utilize larger vials and mix up the contents (sperm) of all these particular vials?

They say that this meeting then broke up in a roar of laughter. Actually it was decided to go halfway down the road that the judge suggested. They would indeed blend the genes of many talented men from all over the world in some of their trials as a control. Other ethnic and racially homogeneous genes would be directed at particular different but somewhat homogeneous communities and the outcomes checked.
