Afterword

An extract from the Afterword of the book Transcending Politics:

Afterword

Communities well worth joining

Faster progress with tasks can take place if you connect into suitable communities. Let me share some brief descriptions of communities that you may find to your taste. I’ve chosen communities that, at time of writing:

  • Are broadly aligned with the technoprogressive vision – though they might not use that particular word to describe themselves
  • Are engaged in a number of promising projects – rather than just being a “talking shop”
  • Are primarily motivated to improve the prospects for humanity as a whole – rather than making money or joy-riding
  • Are open to participation from general members of the public – without any large membership fee or other restrictive selection criterion
  • Consider not just the technological dimensions of change, but also the political and social dimensions
  • Show real awareness of the radical disruptions ahead; they’re fast-paced futurists rather than slow-paced futurists.

Transpolitica and the TPUK

It’s time to confirm an organisational change.

As of March 2019, Transpolitica is focusing on hosting the publication of books,  reports, and blogposts.

Actual discussion and planning of campaigns to take advantage of the ideas in these publications is now happening in a different organisation: the Transhumanist Party UK (TPUK).

For a live update of the projects being undertaken by the TPUK, see this dashboard.

TPUK Dashboard

As you’ll see, there’s a lot going on!

The TPUK declares its goal clearly: “A better future for everyone”. It highlights three top-level principles:

  • Evidence, science, and technology
  • Bright green
  • Personal freedom and social justice.

Although based in the UK, the TPUK welcomes members and supporters from around the world. To sign up to receive regular newsletters and other information by email, find the “Join” section of the TPUK’s main webpage.

You might also consider pressing the “Like” button on the TPUK’s Facebook page. That way, you’ll automatically receive notification of Facebook Live videos featuring TPUK executives – of which the first is scheduled for 6pm UK time on Sunday 3rd March.
