Conservatism and the Quest for Immortality August 21, 2011Posted by Summerspeaker in Anarchism, Transhumanism.
Dale Carrico’s insistence on death as an essential and thus valuable aspect of the human condition proves the worth of transhumanist cultural campaign for indefinite lifespans. Regardless of the technical details, considerable philosophical and psychological advantages stem from rejecting the inevitability of the grave. The revolutionary spirit centers on denying supposed givens and demanding fundamental transformation in this world. Claims of immutability serve reactionary ends. I will never accept horrors like capitalism, war, and physical degeneration as unchangeable. As long as I live I will struggle toward the radiant dream of freedom. Only in this process will we discover how far we can go.
