Obviously you must be so straight and narrow that your not afraid to
have your innermost thoughts and actions broadcast to the world. At our
current state of civilization, a world without privacy would give us the
mass common denominator (read Jerry Springer and Oprah) opressing the
rest of us deviants. As an extropian, aren't you already a deviant to
the majority of humanity? Is this tpye of oppression what you really
want? The United States alone is so uptight, that half the things I
engage in in my own home would probably get me thrown in to the rubber

Until humanity is ready for it, I'll put my privacy above absolute
truth, thank you.
