Hi Jef, thanks for your comment. I think that if we are going for
maximization of positive qualia and minimization of negative qualia, then
growth is necessary. No way we can reduce negative qualia without growing. I
just put growth as a subgoal that's all, I object to people saying that
growth is a goal in itself, that it's justified and it should be an index of
morality. As long as growth serves a purpose then it is very welcome.
