Well, well, I have truly struck the motherlode of openminded,
mold-shattering, cutting edge thinking here on the Extropians list.
You guys talk about memes and starting new ones, but a very big part of what
I have seen here is mainly just follow-the-leader. Jeez, Alex, not only are
you regurgitating propaganda, but 50 year old propaganda.
I am sad to say that you and many of your list-mates here really don't think
and analyze on your own, but just follow a program. You think as you are
told, in large part.
Oh well, at least this list is *nominally* in favor in immortality, although
I find it hard to believe that a practical immortalist would espouse
spending money on a space program....
You may now resume the tribal chatter, etc....
Or maybe you would rather stone me in the village square?
