I'm gonna start with the posts since there's no response.
What, exactly, is this "Fractal Federation" and how does it magically rise to power five years from now? How does it have the authority to ban SETI? What happens if private citizens want to send messages, why should they be stopped? I can see why SETI might be dangerous, but no other part of this makes any sense.
The front page kind of gives you an overview.
I talk about how it rises to power on the Futurist Movement page and there is a little more detail on Jumpstart The Economy.
It wasn't banning all SETI, most of SETI is passive listening. It's basically against the idea of broadcasting a powerful signal (Active SETI) that could be detected by an alien civilization. Some people might want to believe that aliens would have to be "good" because they are more advance technologically. Yea, I disagree with that 100%. In my opinion, most people are influenced by their culture and culture can have any morality imaginable. If aliens are anything like us, then what culture won the culture wars on their planet is anyone's guess.
