"Cryonics Industry and the likely destruction of
those in storage. Two failure modes are considered, organizational decline
and political attack."

Of course: same is true of transhumanism, of space colonisation, of biomed, of science as a whole...

... when you examine science you see for every success there were countless failures.

I tend to agree. Just because cryonics is growing sloooowly does not mean that it's on the road to collapse. The paper compares the cryonics movement to a moribund business, but I don't think that's a valid comparison. If a business does not make a profit, investors can cut their losses by cashing out. Cryonicists don't have the same motivations; they all decide to stay members until death, at least at the moment of signing up.

On the other hand, I think some questions his questions David raises are worth asking. Why can't cryonics organizations fund members themselves, for example?
