Questions you should be asking (and answering) about the future

If you are a human alive today, you should be at least pondering these sorts of questions:

Do you want to live forever (if you could)?

Should euthanasia be legalised?

Should you microchip your children (so they can always be found)?

Should we give non-humans (aka robots and algorithms) human rights (or human responsibilities)?

Is Universal Basic Income something we should push for?

Should genetic engineering of humans be allowed?

Is data a basic human right?

Should you be allowed to build (e.g. 3D print) your own guns and other lethal weapons?

Where do you stand on killer drones, aka autonomous weapons?

If you don’t come up with the answers, someone else will, with or without your input. Even if you don’t have the answers, knowing the questions to ask is a great first step. What other questions do you think we should be asking today about tomorrow?
