I am interested in the possibilities presented by the future
technologies which interest Extropians. Enough so, that I consider myself
an Extropian.

However, many Extropians seem blithely unaware that, in all
likelihood, the State is going to monopolize and/or regulate these
technologies for the Elite for at least the foreseeable future and/or
pervert them for use in further collectivisation of society.

"We", unless "we" are billionaires and politically well connected
ones to boot, might as well forget these dramatic technologies as far as
our own lives our concerned. Well, perhaps I should except life extension
through nutrition, but ever there, GATT threatens to outlaw supplements

As only a few on this list want to face, the Pentagon and CIA are
pursuing vigorously every imaginable technology and will be the firstest
with the mostest! Brain implants are more likely to be used to make
docile slaves than open up possibilities for liberation of the individual.
