The Transhumanist Political Party

The Transhumanist Political Party was born on October 7th, 2014.

Putting Science, Health, and Technology at the Forefront of US Politics” is their motto.

Their #1 goal? Overcome death using science and technology.

Aubrey de Grey believes we have a 50/50 chance of being able to bring death and well-being itself to a manageable state in the next 25 years. This means that death itself will no longer be a worry for some. Healthcare costs will decline, as will cancer itself due to technology (along with big data) to predict disease before it arises. Death itself is considered a disease, and a treatable one at that.

Zoltan Istvan happens to be running for President as Transhumanist Political Party member? Ever heard of him? Me neither. But this just means that we are at the beginning stages of what could become a much larger indication of where the world is headed.

When asked why he is running for President:

“It’s not just a political party — that’s a small part of it. It’s a movement, a bunch of activists trying to raise science and technology issues in parts of the country that really haven’t heard of some of these things.”

This party is far from being able to protect our country or deal with real issues like healthcare, gay rights, or immigration. But in a world where technology rules all and allows one to be super-intelligent, will there even be a need for politicians any more?
