An interview with Zoltan Istvan, leader of the Transhumanist Party and 2016 presidential contender

October 31, 2014 By: Walid Yassin Category: Transhumanism

ExtremeTech has never been particularly interested inpolitics. That being said, as the focus of politics and politicians inexorably shifts towards technology, we might just jump in the water for a dip.

Many might imagine that concerns of a more socio-political nature like who is able to accrue what particular powers or possessions, and from whom would persist independently of technological influence. Others, like the Transhumanist Party founderZoltan Istvan, might offer that socio-political issues already are, at heart, technological issues. Now seizing the day, and a rapidly expanding number of like-minded transhumanists, Istvanhas announced that he will be a contender in the 2016 US presidential race.

If you havent heard of transhumanism, or youre not quite sure what it means, I suggest you read our introductory story about transhumanism before diving into the rest of this story. In short, though, transhumanism (sometimes referred to as H+) is about improving or transforming the human condition through technology. Brain implants, genetic engineering, bionic limbs, indefinite life extension these are all examples of the topics (and elective surgeries) that a transhumanist would be interested in.

In his recentbook The Tranhumanist WagerIstvan outlines three laws:

If energetically adopted, these deceptively simple maxims ultimately compel the individual to pursue a technologically enhanced and extended life. Zoltan and other supporters of transhumanism have come to see the choice to accept or reject these principles as something far more fundamental than the choice between liberal or conservative principles. In other words, it is a more compact predictor, a simpler explanation of your worldview, motivations, and actions than any current party provides.

It is for these reasons that Zoltan has founded the Transhumanist Party and is now taking this first major step to grow it. At this point in the game, the next major step getting access to all the state ballots could prove challenging. With these ideas in mind, we present an interview with (possibly) the next US president: Zoltan Istvan.

Zoltan Istvan

Why did you decide to run for the US presidency?

Zoltan Istvan The most important goal of the Transhumanist Party and my 2016 presidential campaign is to spread awareness of transhumanism and to address the issue that society will be greatly changed by radical science and technology in the next 5-15 years. Most people are unaware how significant these changes could be. For example, we might all be getting brain implants soon, or using driverless cars, or having personal drones follow us around and do our shopping for us. Things like anonymity in the social media age, gender roles, exoskeleton suits for unfit people, ectogenesis, and the promise of immersive virtual reality could significantly change the way society views itself. Transhumanism seeks to address these issues with forward-thinking ideas, safeguards, and policies. It aims to be a bridge to a scientific and tech-dominated future, regardless what the species may eventually become.

While the Transhumanist Party has almost no chance of winning this election, its goal is to get on as many state ballots as possible, so people will see its promise and recognize what it stands for. By doing so, well let citizens know an exciting political movement is afoot that focuses on using technology and science to enhance the human species. And maybe sometime in the future, many people will want to join it. Furthermore, Im hopeful other political parties will take notice of transhumanism and incorporate its ideas into their own philosophies.

Middle School Bans Christian Volunteer After Students Say He Insulted Atheism and Promoted His Beliefs

October 31, 2014 By: Walid Yassin Category: Atheism

A youth volunteer at Straub Middle School in Salem, Oregon, was told by the principal not to return after students accused him of imposing a Christian agenda on them while chastising one student for being atheist.

Tom Saffeels, a mentor from Salem Heights Church, was reportedly ordered to stay out of the school for the rest of the year by principal Laura Perez after some students told her in a letter that he had breached their trust by promoting his religion. Perez says his responsibilities included making sure students cleaned up after themselves in the cafeteria and that any talk of religion violates the separation of church and state, reports The Statesman Journal.

In a letter, some students claim that on Oct. 23, Saffeels began speaking about Christianity in a way that made them feel uncomfortable.

He said, ‘Imagine this scenario: All of us are in a van and were driving somewhere and we get hit by two drunk drivers and we all die,’ said Sarina Keightley, who is in the eighth grade. ‘What happens next?’

Eighth grader Shelby Conway wrote in an email to Perez that Saffeels asked each of the students about their religious beliefs, and that when she told him she was an atheist, he responded that atheism is wrong, bad, stupid and evil.

I was very uncomfortable and personally offended with the way he was speaking to both me and other non-Christians around the lunch room, Conway wrote. I request that we keep things like this, such as pastors and religious speeches, in places where they are welcomed, such as churches or religious schools.

Saffeels denies that these conversations took place and says his motive is not to promote Christianity. He admitted that students asked him that day about Jesus and that he answered with his personal opinion, but that he wasnt the one who instigated the conversation.

None of those things came out of my mouth, Saffeels said. I didnt say any of those things.

But Mary Paulson, the districts chief of staff, says that even if Saffeels didnt insult students, his willingness to respond to their inquiries about religion was a bad judgment call on his part.

If the student had questions about a topic that isnt appropriate for a volunteer to talk to kids about, the expectation would be that they would refer to them to somebody who could talk to them about the topic, like their parent or their own church officials, Paulson said.
