Using the technique of gene silencing, it was possible to turn three-leaved clover into four-leaved clover. Exposure to genetically modified four-leaved clover over a period of one week increased aggregate happiness in human subjects by approximately 200 percent. This technological adaptation of an age-old idea opens up the possibility of piecemeal social engineering and grand-scale political engineering. Ultimately it might lead to global peace.
