I fail to see how avoiding political debate or discussion is respectful
to this listserv. Personally I would be interested in (1.) why you find
libertarianism undesirable, and (2.) what political party or form of
government you do percieve to be *more* suitable to transhumanism.

I imagine I would find such information and debate thorougly
informative. I have not read all of the posts for this thread, but of
those I have read, I have not seen any mention of an alternative
political party to libertarianism. It seems to me that if you are going
to criticize something, you ought to offer an alternative. This is what
we call *constructive* criticism.

Explore and play!
