Why Immortality is Like Blogging
Tyler Cowen explains.
This comes up in the context of Arnold Kling's question "would immortals be libertarian?" I have a certain number of un-libertarian views about regulations aimed at saving people from death that I would, of course, be happy to drop in a world of immortals. But if immortality doesn't render the concept of "health" or "quality of life" meaningless, then I still see room for healthy doses of paternalism and public provision of health-related goods.
