It may be worthwhile for Extropians to compile lists of charlatanism. The benefit of such a list would be that whenever Extropians come across a charlatan buzzword they'll know without further investigation that the author is a charlatan and that his/her "information" on it is fraudulent and probably dangerous. I suggest the following for starters:

Raw food
Beat the tax system
High-yield investments (e.g., 60% per month) Anarchism
Humans free by nature
Power of choice

I would appreciate other Extropians' charlatanism lists.
