The non-humans and the long-term future tag is for posts relevant to questions such as:
To what extent (if at all) is longtermism focused only on humans?
To what extent should longtermists focus on improving wellbeing (or other outcomes) for humans? For other animals? For artificial sentiences? For something else?
Are existential risks just about humans?
Will most moral patients in the long-term future be humans? Other animals? Something else? By how large a margin?
