Before Corona Pandemic, leftists everywhere used various efforts to scare people of research related to genetic modifications, e.g. by opposing gene therapy and forming anti-GMO organizations. This helped cutting budgets for genetic research everywhere including in the U.S. in 2013. Futurists like Ray Kurzweil not only did not deny the dangers of side-effects, but proposed solutions such as simulation to deal with it. About nine months ago in March 2020, a German futurist by the name of Matthias Horx, wrote a note about what we have learned from Corona. It is interesting that Mathias Horx's Persian translator five months ago in August 2020, in 'rfi.fr,' included a quotation from Jurgen Habermas where he says "Corona became a cause for us to see how much we do not understand!" I need to add, it shows how much the Leftists did not have a good understanding of issues at hand when they opposed research about genetic modifications, natural or artificial! Nonetheless, it is good news that not only the leftists now, but even the press of Islamic Regime of Iran (IRI) has widely published Mathhias Horx's commentary during the last 9 months since March of 2020!
