According to the writer C.S Lewis,
“the man-moulders of the new age will be armed with the powers of an omnicompetent state and an irresistible scientific technique: we shall get at last a race of conditioners who really can cut out all posterity in what shape they please…Man’s final conquest has proved to be the abolition of Man.”1
