If you're into transhumanism and technology, there are lots of resources and groups talking about those subjects. The Extropian Principles, however, explicitly value self-ownership and spontaneous order. Political issues that conflict with these princliples are on topic. Particularly issues that concern supression of freedom to explore new ideas and new technologies.
Anyone who fights death is a transhumanist; an Extropian has to fight both death /and/ taxes.
