(The content that was originally on this page is now here: “Transcending Politics”.)
I’m writing to share early news of a planned pivot involving Transpolitica and/or the Transhumanist Party UK.
This pivot will taken place over the next few months. Progressing this pivot is the goal of the forthcoming Q3 sprint for Transpolitica.
The pivot is to place more focus on one particular idea: clarifying the forthcoming era of sustainable abundance. This will happen via the vehicle of a new document – a new manifesto – which (all being well) will be published as a short new book some time later this year.
I’ve been led to this change by reflecting on a number of developments over the last few months, including discussions at last Saturday’s London Futurists conference on Universal Basic Income and/or Alternatives. Another factor influencing my thinking is the responses to my book Transcending Politics. Whilst I’m pleased at the content of that book, I can see that many readers would prefer a simpler introduction to the subject.
Hence the new document, which bears the working title The Transhumanist Abundance Manifesto.
It is presently mainly text, but the idea is that it will contain graphics as well.
As you’ll see, the document contains a call-to-action. If you’re able to help improve the document – particularly the FAQ section at the end (which I envision will grow to at least one hundred questions over the next few weeks), please add your comments and suggestions in this Google doc.
The Manifesto is split into three parts:
- An opening invitation, “Advance!” (roughly one page of A4)
- Sections explaining “Abundance awaits” (roughly three pages of A4)
- FAQ (to form an extended appendix to the previous sections).
For ease of viewing, here’s a current snapshot of the first two sections.
