SOC: Opposition to Transhumanism

Date: Sun Jan 02 2000 - 11:42:51 MST

Close readers of the list will know that I am one of the most vocal and
consistent worriers about opposition to transhumanism. Ruminating (some
might say obsessing) about this over the holiday, I've decided that a more
systematic approach to concern about sources of opposition to our ideals and
goals is necessary. To this end, I've begun work on a website in which I
will collect links to groups and resources that appear to present a current
or potential threat to the transhumanist agenda. The working draft of the
site is at:

This is a work in progress. As you can see, I've developed three categories
of opponents of transhumanist values and goals: 1) Greens, 2) Religious
Groups and 3) Hate Groups and Opponents of Liberty. I would appreciate help
from the list in compiling this list.
