Public Relations (and the Extropian Elite)

I've been thinking about this "Extropian Party" idea, and I think we
should take a few things into account:

1. People are stupid
2. People are stupid
3. People are stupid

So taking these three points into account I have formulated the
following plan for an Extropian Party:

1. Rather than the usual Libertarian "everyone should be free"
nonsense, I propose - "We should be free. You should do as we say."

2. Forget Democracy, Totalitarianism is the only route a modern party
should take.

3. Don't shy away from coercion - you're free (remember?) you can do
as you please.

4. We're not here to "make a better world" we're here to "make a
better self." Anyone who isn't a member is simply media fodder - use
em and abuse em.

5. Our campaign should be one of lying, cheating and media propaganda
- in an election you can't stoop too low.

At this point many of you may think I'm joking - I'm not. So I'd
better explain myself:

By creating a system where everyone's free I can't guarantee that
everything will go my way, there's bound to be some post-democracy
fallout of people who don't know what to do, so they'll carry on the
way they were. Added to that are the people who are just inherently
stupid. So what we want is a Totalitarian society that rewards the
intellectual (democracy tries to make everyone equal - big mistake!)
and ignores anyone against it. And before the knee-jerk "you're
Hitler" mails come my way, Hitler (just like the majority of leaders)
was trying to make a better world, I'm simply trying to make the world
better for myself (a far more admirable goal.)

So if you want to join, agree, or just make some *critical* analysis.
