- The use of drugs so that humans can consume less red meat.
- Hormone treatment therapy on fetuses still in the womb so they are born small in height.
- The lowering of birth rates so that each family is limited to two children.
- Use of drugs to create empathy and altruism within humans so that they can “do the right thing.”
