	Well, the statists can simply leave the anarchists alone. Sure
	it's unlikely, but it's simple.

	The soundest pro russian argument here may be that the russians

	humanitarians were more likely to do.

	What technologies? The only 'technology' I can imagine making a

	The sigularity is singular bullshit. If anything it seems

	motherfucking psychos like kurzweil and the rest of master-race
	'elite' lunatics.
