If I may say so, you expressed them quite well.

Random thought: which extropians (not necessarily
Extropians, but people who agree with our general
outlook) are both electable and would not mind serving
in elected office?  (Or is this too likely to get into
personal threads, some of which might be taken poorly,
to be worth debating on the list, especially if it
involves discussion of list members?  If not...I
suspect I'd have a lot to learn to become electable
myself, and I would not wish to run for office right
now even were that not the case.)
