Yes. But what is the right english term?

In a catholic-socialist regime are the extropic
(extropian?) principles *revolutionary*?
On the contrary, do they rather
suggest *eversion*?

*In Italy*, and in the opinion of those hurried
writers, extropic principles
(or the genoma project, or the singularity concept,
or the mind loading, etc.)
*appear* (at the present time) *eversive*,
not revolutionary.

I do not know why.
Possibly they think that extropians
adore the Extropy as an Absolute,
or that extropianism tend to be
a political movement.

I do not like eversion, fascism, etc.
So I used the very old term *reactionary*.
I knew it was wrong, but I used, and I was wrong!

Best Regards
