Actually, it's more of a SubGenius-like parody of Objectivism. In fact
the charter of Usenet group humanities.philosophy.objectivism states
that the group was created and moderated specifically for the purpose of
banning them, by name, from cluttering the discussion. Nothing in the
neo-tech world is original, interesting, or need be taken seriously.
