We’re talking 2100 yet America lives in 1776 (no wonder, that was their finest year). We want to communicate about transhumanism with a public that doesn’t know how their cellphones are created, a public which wants all the latest gadgets but is firmly stuck in the past?
Goes without saying it’s what we do now, but I’m not doing much about it until Buddhist Right Speech is not only in the silicon world, but in the meat world as well because rubes don’t like anyone tinkering with their lives, they get really mean about it.

And first we get a civilization—then we think about democracy!

Why would anyone think democracy will survive world war 3, which is almost certain to occur before 2100, based on historical evidence, or is it just wishful thinking?

And presumably you don’t distinguish between the democratically elected governments of the US or Palestine?

Unfortunately, in the west, we don’t even have democracy now, it’s just a pseudo democracy where citizens believe they have some influence, yet the real power is wielded by corporations that have bought and paid law makers to act in their interests, ie fascism (see http://www.fascismusa.com).

In the US, Democrats and Republicans are just two sides of the same coin.  The “differences” are just theatre, ie smoke and mirrors.
