We live in a big world... with many different kinds of society and ways of observing life... but... all I can say is that CHEMISTRY IS UNIQUE and besides political interests... never... no one... will create a machine capable of observing the world we live (earth, air, water, sky, etc...) and think about what we see in a human view of point. Chemists are a kind of human beings that have the responsibility to at least try to change the world into a better place.
