I am not a socialist. Socialism doesn't work in our material world. But in
the uploaded realm it just might. Everything is SO EXTREME and simplified
in the uploaded realm and not fuzzy like the real world that capitalism may
not be able to hold it's own. I'm only saying it's something to experiment
with when we get there. I myself want to be an individual living in an
uploaded realm, not have my best parts blended into a supreme individual
and losing my stream of consciousness.
