Radical life extension requires heavy funding - will national budgets eventually earmark sufficient cash to significantly prolong life, or are the vast majority of governments just a Huge Obstruction?
Is it useful to petition civic bodies for research and development revenue? Or is this… just a waste of time?
Are ventures like SeaSteading highly sensible - because longevity breakthroughs can occur best in free zones, liberated from the shackles of bio-conservative policies?
Will age-ending discoveries be accomplished by capitalistic enterprises, entirely devoted to profit? Will competing corporations offer high-priced elixirs?
Perhaps non-profits will lead the way? Funded by membership donations?
If forward-thinking governments do lead humanity towards immortality, which nations offer the most hope? Small nations like Singapore and Israel? Big players like Russia, China, USA, the EU?
Should life extension activists spend their time lobbying politicians? Is that useless? Should they petition billionaires instead? Should they raise funds for individual scientists, in intriguing fields like nano-medicine?
Is your view “libertarian” on this issue, or do you retain faith in social democracy?
