Transhumanism is a new form of Marxism.
I don’t mean that as glowing praise, if you had any doubts. Marxism and transhumanism share a common belief about man’s relationship to nature. Since humans already create nature, we have a duty and obligation to rebuild nature as we see fit.
This is an incredibly dangerous doctrine, and in this piece I want to expand on that idea.
The other day I wrote a short post introducing transhumanism.
If you haven’t read it or don’t want to, the short summary is that transhumanists believe that human beings have an obligation to dominate all of nature, including human beings. For your own good. Okay, for “the greater good”, which somehow manages to forget about the actual people who have to suffer so that the spreadsheets add up.
This process starts with our genes, our brains, and our living bodies.
How does this connect to Marxism?
Glad you asked.
