Go toward the light

From Wired mag.
"A team of scientists from the United States and China announced last week that, for the first time, they had found a means of selectively and safely erasing memories in mice, using the signaling molecule ╬▒CaMKII. It's a big step forward, and one that will be of considerable interest to the military, which has devoted efforts to memory manipulation as a means of treating post-traumatic stress disorder. But some military research has moved in another direction entirely. "

Yes let's simply erase any memory of anything we don't like. And perhaps the memory of the Constitution and founding fathers. What better way to reprogram than to start with a clean slate.
