The people who wrote EP are such fucking loons. I think most of the assumptions EP makes about the future show a fundamental lack of understanding as to how human beings think and act. Its beautiful, in a way, but "grounded" is not something I would call the authors of EP. (Unless this is all just some sort of bizarre parody aimed at the end users)
Anarcho this or Anarcho that. Like there are somehow "rules" that we have to abide by in real life. Like stapling Anarcho in front of "socialism" or "capitalism" as if that actually meant something. I mean, anarcho-whatever is great until you become the establishment, then you are basically stuck with the same options the last guy had.
Its always "forward, forward, forward!" "look to the future!" "We can't be burdened by the past!"
People in EP are still people. They haven't changed. They haven't progressed. They haven't learned anything. You call it transhumanism, but in truth the people of EP are more human than the people of today, in some of the worse ways imaginable. Shallow, conceited, arrogant, obsessed with the material and convinced that everything is morally relative. The people of EP haven't progressed at all. If anything, they've regressed, they are more childish, more arrogant, and more foolish than ever before.
