What position do extropians take on racism and eugenics?

0

Extropians place a very high value on the rights of individuals to self-determination and self-direction. The philosophy of extropy is fundamentally opposed to any form of racism or other judgment of individuals based on similar specious groupings. Extropian opposition to racism is not a function of any kind of post-modernist “politically correct” cultural relativism. Most extropians strongly endorse the notion that the highest product of human culture is the scientific method and that the 18th century Enlightenment represented the real birth of a rational human civilization based on the scientific method and a fundamental valuation of human liberty. Extropians base their opposition to racism on those values. Overt racism and even the milder forms of “racialist” thinking are inconsistent with extropian values of individualism and self-determination and our esteem of the scientific method and world-view.
