    I can't tell what their values are, in order to know if I agree with them or disagree with them. What I do know is that it reads like some commie propaganda, even if it isn't. And "more human" isn't something that I want to be. More bear-like, perhaps.

    Seems to be a commercial venture since it is a purchasing guide.

    I was going to make exactly the same observation about it reading like commie propaganda. To that point, note also the "more human" bit sounds a lot like human empowerment—that is, make humans even more than they are presently so that we, by our humanness, can overcome bad things we don't like (see your point re: their values). That also sounds awfully commie.

    Shall we call you "Björn," if you achieve your bear-like-ness?

    Maybe the question they are really trying to answer is Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

    They could be trying to start their own Tyrell corporation?

    Maybe they are White Zombie fans that didn't know the song was inspired by the previous two things?

    Lol. Though on a slightly more serious note, that did remind me of the transhumanism angle on this whole thing—getting rid of humans to reach the "next stage of evolution" certainly fits into this.

    I am suspicious of this outfit. I make my own mind up on who I want to do business with.

    Considering the events of that last 18 months, suspicion is the only sane starting point when viewing any new development.

    I left the links for the consideration of anyone who wanted to take a look.

    If I can find a reliable source of information of what companies are cooperating with the enemy then I will use it.
