Being dedicated to the future progress of humankind
should be the prime concern of all civilized beings.
Dear Dan Clemmensen and other fellow Extropians:

As civilizatations advance their economic and political systems also
Technology and Science seem to advance at a far faster rate than our
social institutions however. This is understandable when one understands
the psychopathology of the creative act.
Although the social sciences may seem unimportant to many technocrats the
ancillary information that they provide must be fully understood as part
of the gestalt.
