World Council of Churches: Let UN control technology development


Here’s a fresh reason to be distrustful of the World Council of Churches (as if we needed one): they want the UN to have control the development of new technology — any technology, apparently. Specifically:

The international community must create a new United Nations body with the mandate to track, evaluate and accept or reject new technologies and their products through an International Convention on the Evaluation of New Technologies (ICENT).

Whole thing here. It takes a certain degree of disconnection with reality to think that something like this is a good idea.
