>By this definition Extropy is a political ideology.

"a political ideology is a certain ethical, set of ideals, principles,
doctrines, myths or symbols of a social movement, institution, class, or
large group that explain how society should work, and offer some political
and cultural blueprint for a certain social order. A political ideology
largely concerns itself with how to allocate power and to what ends it
should be used. It can be a construct of political thought, often defining
political parties and their policy. The popularity of an ideology is in
part due to the influence of moral entrepreneurs, who sometimes act in
their own interests."

Extropy is a philosophical viewpoint.  Extropy does not have a political
thought that evokes "extropy" in its true sense.
