B - Onwards and upwards: science needs governing

Onwards and upwards. The Economist 2009 December 19:35-38.

Examines scientific, economic, and moral progress. "From the
perspective of human progress, science needs governing. Scientific
progress needs to be hitched to what you might call 'moral progress'.
It can yield untold benefits, but only if people use it wisely. They
need to understand how to stop science from being abused. And to do
that they must look outside science to the way people behave."
