I don’t think history is going to look kindly on us if we don’t have these discussions right now. It may look at us the same way we look at the inventors of the atomic bomb where we’re looking back at them thinking, “You got so excited about the technology, you forgot all of the ripple effects it was going to have. How could you not have taken a deep breath and said, “Let’s think about this”? The difference is that this new technological revolution isn’t happening in some secret desert lab that no one knows about. I was able to write a book about it all, it’s right in our face. So we’re not going to have that excuse that a previous generation did for why they got it wrong.
