Partners (and potential partners) of Transpolitica include:

  • Individual Transhumanist Parties
    • People without any exclusive ties to existing political parties are urged to contact the Transhumanist Party in their own country (or if none yet exists there, to consider setting one up) to offer their support.
  • The Transhumanist Party Global
    • The Transhumanist Party (Global) or TPG is an organisation dedicated to supporting Transhumanist Parties around the world, and encouraging effective communication and cooperation between them. TPG does not hold any dominion over the national-level Transhumanist Parties, which manage their own affairs, but only exists to help them do so in a spirit of effective cooperation with the rest of the movement.
  • London Futurists
    • The mission of London Futurists is “Serious analysis of radical scenarios for the next 3-40 years”. London Futurist meetings and projects explore both the potential upsides, and the potential downsides, of these scenarios.
  • The IEET
    • The Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies (IEET) is a nonprofit think tank which promotes ideas about how technological progress can increase freedom, happiness, and human flourishing in democratic societies. The IEET believes that technological progress can be a catalyst for positive human development so long as we ensure that technologies are safe and equitably distributed. The IEET calls this a “technoprogressive” orientation. Focusing on emerging technologies that have the potential to positively transform social conditions and the quality of human lives – especially “human enhancement technologies” – the IEET seeks to cultivate academic, professional, and popular understanding of their implications, both positive and negative, and to encourage responsible public policies for their safe and equitable use.
  • Humanity+
    • Humanity+ is an international nonprofit membership organization which advocates the ethical use of technology to expand human capacities. In other words, Humanity+ wants people to be better than well. Humanity+ is dedicated to elevating the human condition. Humanity+ aims to deeply influence a new generation of thinkers who dare to envision humanity’s next steps.
  • The ISF
    • The Institute for Social Futurism (ISF) works toward propagation and development of the Social Futurist idea, which is defined as a worldview which combines social justice concerns with the radical transformative potential of modern technology. The ISF also studies financial and economic matters, with a specific focus on post-scarcity. This includes examination of cryptocurrencies, post-monetary economies, resource management issues, Basic Income systems, Land Value Tax proposals, critiques of Fractional Reserve Banking etc. These investigations form the basis of the emerging philosophy of Social Futurism.

Tools for better politics?

Which solutions most deserve mention, in a list of “tools for better politics”?

Tools for better politics

As I’m reflecting on comments from reviewers of the draft chapters of the forthcoming book Transcending Politics, I’ve reached the view that I should add a new section, towards the end of the book, entitled “Tools well worth watching”.

This will fit well into Chapter 14, “Afterword”, which already contains a similarly-themed section “Communities well worth joining”.

If you have any suggestions or comments, either leave them in the Google Doc for Chapter 14, or as replies to this blogpost.

Ideally the list will include tools applicable to one or more of the systems described below (this is an extract from Chapter 1).

  • Transparency systems, so that the activity of public organisations and decisions are visible, and can be judged more easily and accurately
  • Fact-checking systems to determine more quickly and clearly, via an online lookup, if some information is misleading, deceptive, biased, or in any other way suspect or substandard
  • Thinking training systems to help everyone understand and routinely practice the skills of critical thinking, hypothesis formulation and testing, and independent evaluation of sources
  • Accountability systems to hold people and organisations to account whenever they pass on damaging misinformation – similar to how codes of conduct already operate in the fields of advertising and investment communications
  • Bridging systems to encourage people with strong disagreements to nevertheless explore and appreciate each other’s points of view, so that shared values can be identified and a constructive dialog established
  • Educational systems to keep politicians of all sorts informed, succinctly yet reliably, in timely fashion, about the trends that could require changes in regulations
  • Simulation systems to help politicians of all sorts creatively explore possible new policy frameworks – and to gain a better idea in advance of likely positive and negative consequence of these new ideas
  • Monitoring systems to report objectively on whether regulatory policies are having their desired effect
  • Concentration systems to boost the ability of individual politicians to concentrate on key decisions, and to reach decisions free from adverse tiredness, distraction, bias, or prejudice
  • Encouragement systems to encourage greater positive participation in the political and regulatory processes by people who have a lot to contribute, but who are currently feeling pressure to participate instead in different fields of activity.

One source of ideas, by the way, is the H+Pedia article on “Politics 2.0”.
