…hat happens when the uber-privileged from Silicon Valley lose touch with how bad things really are. It is irresponsible, if not actively harmful, to pursue radical life extension as a serious goal, while so many Americans fear that they won’t be able to make through the next few years.
Of all the things to tackle, defund or criticize in America this is what you choose to focus on?
The article feels a bit pandering to the narrative of billionares vs everyone else, its always the us vs them narrative.
Why not go after your military spending? The US has the ability to reduce, if not altogether drop poverty, improve healthcare and guarantee a better standard of living for all is citizens.
You the resources, it just happens that you decide to spend that money on military spending.
Take the F-35 program, at a cost of 1 trillion USD it dwarfs anything that Larry Page, or any other Billionaire has spend to date on trans-humanism .
While I sympathize with the feeling behind the article, you are barking at the wrong tree here.
