: I look around the extropians list and I see people -- same as it was
: in 1992 -- with their eyes fixed on the stars, but their whole idea
: of economic interaction is based on an uncritical acceptance of
: dogma inherited from the 1920's (and formulated to some extent as a
: backlash against the then-dire threat of Soviet collectivism). This
: is a weird paradox: forward-thinkers who _refuse_ to examine some
: of their assumptions and try to improve on them.

Gee, I can still remember when freemarket economics was a blazing
