Without intelligence enhancement, I can't readily see a way out of this mess humanity has itself in. I don't trust us with nanotechnology one bit; we've already shown ourselves irresponsible with much lesser technology. I'm not all that keen on having humans that just think faster, either. No, a new intelligence is needed, one without the human errors built into it, to help us all see flaws even the best of us have overlooked.
Though perhaps some of these issues are simply in Gandhi Stage Two. "First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win." Though for some I know it's not even past stage one. People continue ignoring anti-aging, anti-death information. Humans are disgusting sometimes.
