It is with great joy and excitement that I introduce "Op-Eds From the Future," the newest series. The first piece in the series is by the brilliant science fiction writer Ted Chiang
Read! This! Geneticists, especially curious about your thoughts on this op-ed from the future
I am deliriously happy today, thanks to the Op-Eds From the Future launch. This is a dream almost eight months in the making, and we're just getting started. If you haven't read the first piece in the series yet, please do - it's AMAZING
Somebody asked after that Game of Thrones essay what other good works of sociological storytelling are out there, and the answer is basically everything Ted Chiang’s ever written
This Op-Ed is a work of fiction.
The genius Ted Chiang's op-ed from the future on genetics: "We are indeed witnessing the creation of a caste system, not one based on biological differences in ability, but one that uses biology as a justification to solidify existing class distinctions"
Speculative fiction as op-ed: - kudos to the for trying a new format here.
In the first installment of our new series, "Op-Eds From the Future," science fiction author Ted Chiang imagines what the future of genetic engineering will look like
This is the first installment in a new series, “Op-Eds From the Future,” in which science fiction authors, futurists, philosophers and scientists write op-eds that they imagine we might read 10, 20 or even 100 years in the future.
Interesting idea from : op-eds from the future. And I will happily read anything that Ted Chiang decides to publish. It’s 2059, and the Rich Kids Are Still Winning
The future of genetic engineering will lead to greater class divisions, writes science fiction writer Ted Chiang in our new series "Op-Eds From the Future"

DNA tweaks won’t fix our problems
Ignoring the technical falsehoods this article is spectacularly oblivious to what actually happens to gifted blacks and others: the Matthew effect of accruing benefits is *far stronger* for them, whisked into private schools on full scholarships etc. Duh!
ethical concerns with genetic enhancements: they are likely to perpetuate existing injustices even if they are freely distributed
