Kees van der Pijl:

"A Swiss specialist on the issue of neuro-engineering, Marcello Ienca, reviewing the new
departures into brain and identity manipulation by the large IT corporations, warns
that the time in which they will able to actually direct people’s preferences is not too
far away any more. He argues for a right to psychological continuity [which] might preserve people’s personal
identity and the continuity of their mental life from unconsented external
alteration by third parties. Psychological continuity is an important issue in the
context of national security, where mandatory personality-changing interventions
might be justified in light of greater strategic goals. Brain interventions that
reduce the need for sleep are already in use in the military, and it’s easy to
imagine interventions that make soldiers more belligerent or fearless."
