Many humans define as Nazi Germany ``right'' on their traditional left-right
politicometers. I don't find national socialists very extropic, though.

I postulate that transhumanism will obsolete the traditional left-right scale,
anyway. The Libertarian Party <URL:> of the U.S.A. has on
their web site a pointer to a quiz <URL:>,
which IMO better describes the spectrum of political philosophy.

The quiz IMO equally well describes `borganist' and `extropic'.

And as the honourable members may well remember, a discussion, on what the
`correct' dimensions of transhumanist political philosophy might be, ensued..
