Oh, yes; agreed on all points. I trust that no one takes me to deny the
power of art to accomplish quite important things. And, for the record, I
salute artists who (like Natasha) work hard and well to express Extropian
ideas to the public. I simply wanted to clarify that many less-exalted works
could qualify as "Extropic art"--at least under a pretty plausible
understanding of that term.
