Ideapod – on small footstep

IdeaPod1: One Small Footstep

Agreed.
For me, serious investigation began in 1974, when I realised that indefinite life extension was possible. So the next question because, if we eliminate the risk from aging itself, what other risks exist?
What sort of social, political and technical systems are actually required to create a low risk environment for everyone?

41 years on, the greatest risk seems to be from valuing money over people.

We need to reverse that.

We can relatively easily create technologies to deal with any physical challenge.
The biggest challenge is changing our values structure, and putting people and their liberty above money or things. And the math is clear to me that we actually need to do that if any of us want a reasonable chance at a long and prosperous life.
