Subject: Please keep politics out of cryonics (Was: What is PNAC)
References: <>

As one who was born under the Nazis, received my basic education
in Communist East Germany, fled from there under risk of my life at
age 17, because my position there had become untenable, I am as
much interested in politics and concerned about recent developments
as anybody in this forum.  I can also assure you, that I am often sorely
tempted to draw the attention of my friends in Cryonet to some of the
serious topics, which do not receive any, or at least not enough
attention in the mainstream media.  But partisan politics will get
cryonics into even more hot water than it will get into otherwise,
when it becomes more widely known.

There are discussion groups, where such topics as Neo-conservatism
and PNAC are widely discussed, most notably the one in the
Washington Post, where with very few exceptions the intellectual
niveau of the debaters is quite comparable to the one on Cryonet.  
The participants often supply URLs to information, which adds
insights not available in the American mainstream media.
