Couple of Ideas

I wonder if we could use Earth Day to promote our views of saving the planet (using "ultratechnology" to end pollution and remove the harm we've done to the planet). Every year on Earth day we hear the Statist mantra of mandatory volunteerism (slavery) and the Left plays it up as a big guilt trip.

Since we're all Practical Optimists perhaps we can put a positive spin on the whole Evironmental thing. Maybe we could get good press out of it.


Another thing - does anyone ever put out Extropian press releases? Do we have enough of a stand to issue statements? Should we? Or would any attempt to release a statement be mired in continuous argument?

It would be interesting to look at current events (Yugoslavia, China-gate, etc.) through the Extropian Principals - How does bombing Yugoslavia fit in with Practical Optimism or Rational Thinking?

Maybe we could release a subset of various Extropian views...

Couldn't we use some press?
