Project #26984 - Sociology Senerio

Alien Technology

 Scenario:

 In the not too distant future, an alien spaceship descends on Washington DC. Aliens come out and say hello and share much of their knowledge with humankind. Along with new technologies, they also teach us new sets of values.

 For instance, in their immensely advanced society they have come to the conclusion that no living, conscious creature should be killed—even by accident. Doing so in their society is considered murder and is penalized as such. Of course such occurrences are very, very rare on their planet. In fact their planet has no real violence at all, accidental injuries or deaths to any creature are extremely rare. No Aliens live in any discomfort and freedom abounds.

 They explain to us that even the accidental death of insects on a windshield is morally reprehensible and should be considered the same as plowing through a crowd of pedestrians. The aliens have a technology they call a Life Shield that can be used to prevent the death of all living creatures.

 The only catch is, while the aliens have left us with technical know-how to build these Life Shields, it turns out that they are extremely expensive and time-consuming for we humans (with our little brains) to build. Overtime, due to the high cost of their production they become a luxury item that only a few can afford but everyone wants. People that own them become invincible and at the same time, become incapable of (even accidentally) killing another conscious living creature. Life Shields are all the rage among the rich and famous.

 Congress, and the president are trying to figure out what to do about this new technology. A variety of laws are being considered.

 Should Life Shields be:

 A) Sold privately to only those who can afford to buy them?

B) Given out in a national lottery

 C) Only given to children

 D) Only given to criminals

 E) Given out to only certain people who need them (fire fighters, police officers, etc).

 F) Outlawed completely.

 G) Some other plan_______________________________________.

 How would passing your law change our society?

 Would Life Shields create a utopian society for humans? Why or why not?
