What is this "Extropian concept of maximized individual freedom"?

What's this about subversive elements? Anyone is free to (non-coercively)
prevent others from being stupid. For instance, I'm doing that every day I
teach a class.

Before deciding that you're militantly anti-Extropian, it would help if you
understood what is extropian.
