"Contemporary transhumanism has grown out of the ideas and writings of an
international mind-set of individuals with varied political backgrounds,
and whose unique perspective of the future and whose values were clearly
Who are these individuals? They include such diversity as:
FM-2030 - Global (of Iranian background, born in Belgium and first language
French) - politics "Globalism"
Natasha Vita-More - Woman, Born in NY, lived in Italy and Japan - politics
then "Green Party", "Democrat"
Max More - British - not affluent - politics: "Friends of the Earth",
"Peace Movement" and "libertarian"
Robert Ettinger - American, white, male, ?
Linda Chamberlism - Woman, cryonicist,
Timothy Leary Male, White, politics - "Radical Democrat"
Eric Drexler ?
etc., et al.
