a pluralistic social blueprint

As far as I'm concerned, anything that doesn't create a nuisance for the neighbours is OK with me. I draw the line at human sacrifice, slavery, and child abuse, however, even if done quietly. Smile | :)

a post-scarcity economy

My prediction is that this will never happen. Once there is "a chicken in every pot", "a car in every garage", etc. someone will come up with the slogan "a star-ship in every spaceport". Where does it end?

radically decentralized governance, typically by public assembly

This, at least, is possible. The Internet already provides the basic infrastructure, but issues such as verification of votes (and voters) are far from resolved.
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
