I have a very nuacaed perspective when it comes to Gain of Function. I think GoF should be prohibited when it comes to the usual suspects (basically the zoonotic crew, anyone connected with EcoHealth, and this small group of corrupted, self-absorbed virologists).

But the West needs dual use research, otherwise China will just take over... they are already ahead of us IMO.

Science/progress is a never ending debate imo

But I understand if you want to control the world, you cant fall behind, even if it is only to reach a "Cold War status situation"
