You keep talking in terms of "we", but shouldn't you be talking in terms of
What if you go broke (it could happen), and you need to get a job. There is
only one job that you are qualified for AND that pays medical insurance. An
immigrant however is better qualified than you, so he gets the job. You get
sick and cannot afford the operation to get well, and you cannot keep up
your Alcor dues. So it's dust to dust...for YOU! :-)

so now, all this is moot. So how does the "we" fit into the Extropian
scheme of things? Resource are ultimately very local, or at least that is
where resources matter the most....for YOU and for ME!
