Transhumanists Disavow Zoltan Istvan Candidacy for US Presidency
We are Transhumanists, and we disavow Zoltan Istvan's candidacy for President of the United States.
We also disavow the nominal Transhumanist Party USA, so long as it cowers under authoritarian control, so long as it denies the diversity of Transhumanist values, and so long as it mongers unnecessary hostility toward others.
We support the Transhumanist Declaration, which reads: "Policy making ought to be guided by responsible and inclusive moral vision, taking seriously both opportunities and risks, respecting autonomy and individual rights, and showing solidarity with and concern for the interests and dignity of all people around the globe."
The positions and actions of Zoltan Istvan and his political party are not consistent with the Transhumanist Declaration. They are not inclusive. They do not show solidarity with or concern for the interests and dignity of all.
We are Transhumanists, and we disavow all political parties and candidates that would falsely or narrowly represent us.
