I think someone authorized and/or qualified and possibly unattached to 
Alcor should prepare this for more public dissemination, if any change 
is necessary, and then submit it to a magazine. I know of one almost 
guaranteed to accept it, the magazine "Physical Immortality", produced 
by The Society for Venturism. Then it can be said to have been published 
and maybe then made more tasty for pickup by other magazines.

Signature Memetic Virus--The worst enemy of those who now or will need medical 
care is the uninformed politician or moral fanatic who proscribe what doctors 
are allowed to prescribe and research, with the consent of their patients. Those
who understand this are strongly encouraged to modify this to fit their 
personality, and add this to their signature file, and organize to recover our 
freedom from Big Brother. For those who wait until they are sick, it will be too
late. Those who suffer from diseases which might have been cured by advanced 
medical research or schedule 1 drugs banned by Big Brother, have the right to 
hold accountable those who sat on their hands or worse, deferred their 
responsibility for personal and humanity's survival to unseen agents, while they
remained ill and dying.
