I think would be good to develop a way to organize the defence of a
society that is based upon the Principles of Extropy.

This is consistent with the first point of the Principles of Extropy.
It is also consistent with practical optimism and rational thinking.

This is a way to overcome the constrains that our current organization 
of the society put upon our development and the development of the 
society itself.

The current organization of the western societies is, in my opinion, a 
brake to the healthy development of individuals and group, and will make 
near impossible or incredibly slow our development as a species.

So we need to develop a framework of how organize the future, when 
someone will be able to create extropic, libertarian, anarcho-capitalist 
seasteding or space-faring communities.

When Jefferson helped to write the Constitution and the Bill of Rights 
he was deeply influenced by Cesare Beccaria writings. So, maybe, someone 
could be influenced by these and other topics and will not be force to 
fall back to the old ways to organize things.
