Debate Forum: What Can – or Should – Be Done about “Nazi Transhumanists” ?


A new website has emerged called Aryan Legacy that promotes “Nationalist Transhumanism.” Its agenda is clearly Neo-Nazi – examining the site one quickly finds racist and anti-Semitic propaganda.
Should progressive transhumanists confront this hate-mongering site? Or ignore it?

Transhumanists believes that prospective developments in a suite of technologies called the NBIC technologies and sciences will at last allow humans unprecedented control over their own and morphology.

NBIC stands for Nanotechnology, Biotechnology, Information Technology, and Cognitive Science.

  • Nanotechnology – very fast and precise atom-scale manufacturing, (Programmable Matter, New Materials, Post-Scarcity Economics).
  • Biotechnology – manipulating life and living systems at the genetic/sub-cellular level, synthetic life (Genetic Enhancement, Ageing Cures)
  • Information Technology – computing, cybernetics (Artificial Intelligence, Brain Machine Interfaces)
  • Cognitive Science – understanding the architecture and implementation details of human and nonhuman minds (Cognitive Enhancement, Mind-Uploading)

Should we accept the notion that “transhumanism” is movement that can be adopted by any political ideology.
Or should we assert a clear definition that adamantly condemns Nazism?

Transhumanism: The Most Dangerous Idea?

Why striving to be more than human is human

 | August 25, 2004

“What ideas, if embraced, would pose the greatest threat to the welfare of humanity?” That question was posed to eight prominent policy intellectuals by the editors of Foreign Policy in its September/October issue (not yet available online). One of the eight savants consulted wasFrancis Fukuyama, professor of international political economy at Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, author of Our Posthuman Future: Consequences of the Biotechnology Revolution, and a member of the President’s Council on Bioethics. His choice for the world’s most dangerous idea? Transhumanism.
In his Foreign Policy article, Fukuyama identifies transhumanism as “a strange liberation movement” that wants “nothing less than to liberate the human race from its biological constraints.” Sounds ominous, no? But wait a minute, isn’t human history (and prehistory) all about liberating more and more people from their biological constraints? After all, it’s not as though most of us still live in our species’ “natural state” as Pleistocene hunter-gatherers.
Human liberation from our biological constraints began when an ancestor first sharpened a stick and used it to kill an animal for food. Further liberation from biological constraints followed with fire, the wheel, domesticating animals, agriculture, metallurgy, city building, textiles, information storage by means of writing, the internal combustion engine, electric power generation, antibiotics, vaccines, transplants, and contraception. In a sense,the goal toward which humanity has been striving for millennia has been to liberate ourselves from more and more of our ancestors’ biological constraints.
