It's surreal to read this. I was one of the 
earliest of subscribers to the original extropian 
list, twenty or so years ago. I was delighted to 
join and help build a community that shared so 
many of my (even then) long-standing interests. 
One of the ideas was that it was a place where we 
didn't have to defend or explain the 
fundamentals. And the dominant sentiment was that 
anarcho-capitalist libertarianism was one of them.

I recognize the drift from that here over the 
years, and the reasons for it, but your posting 
still feels weird. Like someone saying "I 
understand there are some Jews in Israel."

I guess the paleo-extropian label is appropriate; 
it's easy to feel like a living fossil.
