"Most outsiders can't handle America, so they wind up back in Blaseville,
Eurasia, badmouthing the US for the rest of their lives. In reality, most of
the people who run down America have never been there. And if they ever went,
we would destroy them in eight minutes. People hate America because that's
where the action is, and they know it's passing them by. Most of the decisions
that control poeple's lives are made in the USA. Not in Geneva, not in Berlin,
no on the Champs Elysee. In America! L. A. and New Yawk. People can't handle
that. Pisses 'em off. Screw 'em!"

Useless hypotheses, etc.:

analog computing, cultural relativism, GAC, Cyc, Eliza, cryonics, individual
uniqueness, ego, human values, scientific relinquishment, malevolent AI,
non-sensory experience

We move into a better future in proportion as science displaces superstition.
