Upgrading isn’t for everybody

Transhumanists envision an egalitarian future in which all humans are upgraded to transcend the limits of our poorly designed (in their view) biology.  Thousands of years of recorded history suggest that only the 1% will be able to afford the promised enhancements.  The end result will be a society that is even more stratified between the genetically enhanced haves and the have-nots.
