The last murder trial

June 23, 2041. Bank robbery. Thirty customers gunned down by the robber inside the bank. Murder trial.
The defense lawyer calls eight physicists to the stand. They all testify that: a) the brain rules and directs all human activity; b) the brain is entirely composed of tiny particles which possess absolutely no free will; c) there is no evidence that any combination of these particles produce free will.
Therefore, the defense argues, the accused robber cannot be found guilty. He wasn’t choosing to kill those 30 people. His brain demanded it. In fact, there is no “he.” The brain is the person.
The prosecution asserts that “everybody knows there is free will.” So some combination and interaction of the particles that make up the brain must be producing it.
The defense counters: “Claiming something must be true because everybody knows it is, is absurd.”
The jury deliberates and concludes that the robber is innocent, because he had no control over his actions.
At a press conference, the district attorney states, “Accepting this verdict is accepting that guilt for any crime under the sun is impossible. Is that what we want?”
The President addresses the nation. “It’s time we finally wake up to the fact that no one is really guilty. Don’t worry, be happy. Good night, and good luck.”
In reviewing the case, the US Supreme Court, in a unanimous decision, rules: “We must rewrite the Constitution to catch up with physics. There is no free will, there is no freedom, there is no guilt.”
The Pope issues a statement: “God will take the place of free will.”
The president of The Technocracy Society writes: “When every human brain on the planet is irretrievably hooked up to the Big Brain Computer, no one will ever again mention free will. Everyone will have titanic wisdom, in which case, what would we need freedom for?”
Pastor Mike Goober, head of the New Age All and Everything Commission, echoes the President: “Don’t worry, be glorious. The Universe will take care of us. There are no problems. Keep smiling.”
However, a large segment of the US population fails to grasp the import of the brain-particle-no-free-will formulation. Over the next two years, 30 states secede from the Union.
Ha-ha, could never happen. None of this could ever happen. Maybe not, but a great deal of drug, brain, and genetic research is already proceeding on the assumption that the brain is everything and there is no free will. Which means: the true objective of the research is reprogramming the human being, so he will act and think on the basis of principles determined by “those in charge.”
Those in charge, of course, pump out definitions of what is normal and good and happy and healthy and cook “the science” to make it all appear legitimate.
