Should Technology Trump Ethics?

What happens when technology moves faster than our capacity to decide if it is right?

In Tomorrow 2.0, a new technology, perhaps only a few years away in real terms will be unleashed.

In Tomorrow's Paper, the first book in the trilogy, the brain/ computer diversion became blurred. Criminal behavior disappeared, filtered out by a computer chip held deep in the brain. No more depression, no more fear, no more unhappiness.

A valid question is "if the result is good, why not?".
