What Will Happen to Politics when Transhumans Take Over the World

I had a crazy idea that politicians themselves could be transhuman one day. They themselves will have supreme intelligence and perhaps will have access to that technology before the masses. Will the cost of superior technology and intelligence be available to the masses?

I’ve been thinking a lot about the bad people of the world. They are fighting to retrieve weapons of mass destruction in order to take over certain parts of countries. Information controls all, and once intelligence is made available for brains to upgrade via the cloud, who is to say that cannot be hacked just like anything else? Anonymous could find a way.

Imagine a terrorist getting the ability to become super intelligent. How will we fight that? Clearly if super intelligent good people were fighting super intelligent bad people, this would result in a stalemate. An endless stalemate of warring between countries and political ideas. But we all know language and rhetoric controls people. With the onset of global communication, will someone in Syria be able to control the masses of people in America depending on their outreach to us? Can someone from Asia turn Central American citizens from their governments?

Scientists and politicians are promoting the fusion of humans and computers in order to achieve the next set of technological advancements. These advancements will not only keep us alive and healthy for as long as we want, it will help us get to the next world for us to populate. There are so many implications to think about here. We are already playing chess for the ‘land’ in space (Mars, the moon).

The Transhumanist Political Party (which I will write about in another post) is a way to introduce forward thinking into politics. It’s not only a way to express the members’ thoughts on transhumanism but also introduces a way for the government to stray away from a two-dimensional party system. I’m wondering what sort of drawbacks the citizens will have on this party as time goes on, and especially as the movement itself grows momentum.
