Will There be Class Conflict Over Life-Extension Technologies?

    Sonia Arrison at The Volokh Conspiracy: Could class conflict or even warfare break out over life-extension technologies? It is true that technology is rarely adopted by everyone at the same time, and when life-extending science hits the market, it will almost certainly be used by the wealthy first.
