For a variety of different reasons, none of which are necessarily
compatible with each other; just as it should be.

I doubt extropianism is justified the same way in moret han two or three
different individuals within the group; trying to agree on a universal
moral justification may even be ANTITHETICAL to the whole extropian
concept for some (a la pancritical rationalists.) So I'd just as well
leave this topic alone.
