Moral Enhancement

Moral Enhancement

Pharmacological enhancement is a booming industry. Moral enhancement through nootropics is an emerging subcategory of the field. It focuses on a form of transcultural governance. Moral disgust is situated in our brain’s area that also appears to be responsible for our gustatory senses. Therefore, if you feel moral disgust, the effect is the same as biting into rotten fruits. The result is visceral, a bodily experience. By enhancing the impact, one can become exponentially more sensitive to moral affront. The distribution throughout societies of these pharmacological interventions persistently advances our sense of ethical and moral values. Ethics and Morals become inescapable since the enhancement unleashes a bodily experience of physical sickness, including extreme vomiting. This process is accompanied by a pedagogical project of anti-corruption education; making power abuse transparent; abolishing institutional gatekeeping; legal prosecution of labeling and discriminatory tendencies; revealing the organizational dynamics of climate collapse perpetrators; normative excision of complicity and hypocrisy; as well as a systemic exorcism of indifference and ignorance. Soon enough, the moral enhancement will become the new arms race. Those who vomit more will triumph over those who cannot vomit enough.
