Jonathan Moreno: Envisioning a "bioprogressive America"

Jonathan Moreno, PhD, makes the case for a "bioprogressive America," in which the left and right join together to support the advance of human knowledge:

Since the nation’s founding, progress in the Enlightenment sense has been key to the idea of America. A corollary belief has been an exceptional level of investment in creating a political, legal, and financial environment that encouraged scientific innovation. Jefferson’s patent statute, for example, gives particular latitude to inventors, as the founders (who were themselves remarkably keen on natural philosophy and numbered several world-class thinkers), sought to make the new nation a welcoming home for the brightest and most creative minds.
