If it's introduced slowly which it likely will as a matter of practicality. There will be a short rise in population and depending on quality of life a variety of other factors, it'll likely even itself out as we've seen from other countries when quality of life increases.

I'm sure it will. Rich white people first, then rich Japanese people.

I mean if we don't smash capitalism and hierarchy first that is exactly what will happen, god-like rich immortals and the mortal proles.

I'm all for that. I don't think certain things should be created under capitalism due to the difficulty it would cause in dismantling oppressive systems . I still want immortality but never at the expense being able to solve the problems already present.

Because I didn't consider this some deep ideological topic. I can wish and advocate for a certain process and recognize that given the current circumstances it may not go that way. And given my interests and proclivities the best practical thing I can do is be a "man on the inside". It's not great, it's not perfect, it's what I got.

Also you don't know my ideology, the scope of this topic was to a want. so I kept it to that. you want some philosophical dick measuring contest I'm down, but let's not forget that this was a thread based in surface thinking. I complied as much and you're being a fucking dick for no reason.
