I see what you mean. Can't we muster up enough generosity to allow stupid people to have their alternative? After all, if they have no alternative, then they'll take it that they _must_ transcend through coercive tactics of transhumanity. Who will take charge of the sordid task of transcending stupid people (possibly against their will)? Why can't we leave stupid people to their stupidity, if they prefer that? I myself have elected to remain a sub-genius, fearing what horrors more intelligence than I already have might reveal to me right around the corner. <looks out window and laughs>
