Hello everyone! Medium time lurker, first time poster here.
I guess I should start by saying something about how much I love Eclipse Phase. There are few things I enjoy as much as thinking about the future and how technology may change society, and since Eclipse Phase is pretty much "Transhumanism: The Game" it's an excellent way to combine my interest in futurism with my interest in procrastinating by reading RPG books.
Now, while the branches of transhumanism embraced by libertarian-leaning people like Max More, Peter Thiel, Ronald Bailey and Anders Sandberg (hey there Arenamontanus!) and currents such as anarcho-transhumanism are well represented in the game, the philosophies of utilitarian transhumanists such as David Pearce and Julian Savulescu seem to have less of a place in the harsh Solar System of 10 AF. I'm more specifically thinking about the philosophy known as abolitionism (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abolitionism_%28bioethics%29), which advocates making all feeling beings happier (using SCIENCE!) and the idea of "moral enhancement" (http://philosophynow.org/issues/91/Moral_Enhancement), which advocates making humans nicer (using even more SCIENCE!).
If one were to try to find a place for these ideas in the world of Eclipse Phase, where would it be? How could one include such themes in this game of ideas?
