Towards the Radical Redefinition of Transhumanism: Wesley Strong’s Critique March 13, 2013Posted by Summerspeaker in Anarchism, Anti-imperialism, Decolonization, Queer politics, The Singularity, Transhumanism.
Read it over at IEET. I agree with Strong’s position as completely as I agree with anything:
Therefore we must redefine what “transhuman” means and what it means to be a Transhumanist. We must seek a transhumanism that directly speaks to the social lives of billions of people, instead of relying on some future technology to fix everything for us. We must seek to transcend human boundaries by transforming repressive the very social structures we created while also developing futuristic technologies to improve our lives and our ability to connect with each other.
The comments on the piece, of course, are terribly predictable, but Strong is taking the time to write in-depth replies.
