In a world where everyone is a trillionaire, the guy with ten trillion
still gets the girl, the better spaceship, the asteroid in the better
neighborhood, more friends, and more opportunities. The very concept
of "enough" is ridiculous, with no place in Extropian thought. It is
at odds with conservation of mass-energy and the desire to expand.
Equality is for ants.
