In order to prevent extropic phase transition (which would obviate all current
paradigms of government, and shatter whole systems of socio-economic
organization), expect the body politic to repeal or to enact whatever it deems
necessary for the task. When their very existence is threatened by automation,
Hierarchies of Orwellian Big Brother Luddite Elitism (HOBBLE) from every
nation conspire against the liberty of all extropian visionaries, and Bill Joy
conjures images of the Dutch Boy with his finger in the dyke
(the other kind of dyke).
