Subject: Re: Godwin's Law

Needless to say I disagree with Godwin's Law, we must call things by their 

name. I have nothing against Hitler (the name) but I can't admit the nazi policy
even in disguise under another name. The same for Stalinism, Maoism and other 
"dictatureism" as seen in South America for example.

Religions, money, power, when unbalanced, are the roots of such "isms". My 
ideas are well known, so I have nothing more to loss. Some other could not say 
the same and could think two times about to whom they are speaking.  may be it 
must be recalled that cryonet is something special. It is archived and these 
archives will be here when some contributor here will be reduced to an ice 

block. They will be here too when, someday there will be a solution out of the 
ice block.

That potential second life may be very long, I don't think infinite, but it 
may be counted more in the millions of years than in centuries. Someone can do 
many things in that time frame, including having a major ruling position. So 
would it be good to live again someone with declared dictatorship feeling?

I have said before that if I had a said in the use of a live again 

technology, such as a brain scanner for uploading, I would be strongly against 
such a second try for baby dictators. (I include hard core hunters, because I 
think what is important is consciousness, and all social mammals and birds seem 
to have more or less the same capacity here.)

I have no faith in any god and I think you can do or say anything without 
benefit or punishment for such absurd concept (Churches are powerful pressure 
groups, but that is another story.) On Cryonet, what you say will be weighted 

someday by what is the nearest reality to a god: Someone or a machine having to
say if you must live again or not. At that time you'll have no way to say 

anything for your case, you'll be on ice. On the other hand, you can say and 
more important, act now so that your case looks good.

If you think the nearly infinite future will be taken by hysteric monetary 

dictatorship, then display it. If you think the future is about religion without
restrain, an infinite dark age, then go to the church, scientology seem well 
started to build a world tyranny.

Make your bets the game is open.

I have made my choice: Metal working to make the tools of the next generation 
scientific instruments. My lathe wait me.

So...basically you are saying that some future AI will make a decision 
as to whether or not you will be revived...based, at least in part, on 
your posts in a Usenet newsgroup in 2003???  ROTFLMAO!!!
