But eliminating them leaves a relatively small part of the population to
choose my friends from. I might well do better to spend some time giving
clues to the clueless...
Tell me about it! But I find that the best way to argue for Extropic memes,
is my Automorph : to live a great example of Extropy... rather than debate
things, people have these set ideas, they spew the deathist mentality and
stick to it firmly. ...
and often I just listen to them, sort of gently push the buttons of optimism,
Extropic Art, Individual Freedom, and so on.. and if they are interested
*then* I will talk.. but otherwise I just like to let them watch and see the
results. Cluelessness is usually a self imposed condition, and one that
people do not give up lightly( like religions).
