you don't seem to get it at all. Death is very important. It is very very important that supreme scum like kurzweil die ASAP. However, things are moving in the opposite direction. The worst scum on the planet 'might' become immortal, or at least even harder to kill. Don't you see how BAD that is? I mean, if you actually care about freedom...

techno fascist bullshit.
funnily enough, here's a self selected article by nutcase techno fascist bostrom deals exactly with that topic
it's a tirade whining about the government not wasting enough money to make the worst scum on the planet 'immortal'
"While we still lack effective and acceptable means for slowing the aging process, we can identify research directions that might lead to the development of such means in the foreseeable future." bla bla bla -
research directions to which "the king"(bostrom's own words) should allocate the resources he and the rest of the oligarchy steal from the peasants.
