I do not agree that the above is insulting.
To claim that Extropy is not an ideology is absurd.
The fact that is that it is both a philosophical *and* political ideology.
As I wrote on the Consensus site, Transhumanism will be the major political
issue of this century. Any org that wishes to encompass this aim cannot
escape being political. Transhumanism is about both technology and politics.
Since ExI claims to subsume Transhumanism within an even wider *political*
agenda it really is absurd to say it is not a political ideology *at least*.
