I thought the grounds of extropian belief where an open-mind and the fact
that beliefs aren't forced upon you. Extro thinking (to me) seems to be
basic, a platform for which to build your own personal concepts of yourself
and the world around you. Surely anyone with the attitude that you speak of
is not extropic at all!
