libertarianism" or "does extropianism equal libertarianism" ... so what is
it then? "what is the moral/political stand of extropianism?" perhaps.
well, if we are to agree on a solution, we must first agree on the nature
of the problem. so here is a first approximation ... a group of autonomous
agents live together with finite resources; we want to gurantee each of
these agents a floor of minimum resources and also seek to maximize
average resources? does that sound like it's on the right track? and if
so, could we begin from a clean slate and devise a sketch of a strategy to
solve this problem? and if this were also done, couldn't we just call the
sketch "a part of extropianism" rather than lump it with some established
