We can’t improve people the obvious ways or they’ll know, so let’s blame technology for our control freak megalomania live-forever delusions!
Individuals are fine, individualism is a cult.
it is the project to alleviate all pain and distress, maximise gratification and fulfillment, abolish ageing and sustain human life indefinitely.
Have you met really, really old people?
They are bored to tears.
You can’t alleviate all pain without making someone numb, distress without making them stupid (the blissful idiot), aging (cell change) will happen if you want memory and there are already too many people on the planet for food demands so unless you plan a 99% style famine, living forever is unwise. Do you want to live through every nuclear war and fall into the sun?
You know what it really is?
They wasted their lives, their youth in hedonism. Now they’re gonna die and being narcissistic, they can’t stand the idea the world might be better off.
Instead of admitting the fault, they assume they can try again like a video game an endless number of times.
They’re staring down the barrel of a gun and trying to make themselves bulletproof.
You know the type.
The word “consensual” has replaced moral, you don’t need to argue the latter anymore. Something “fun” cannot be wrong! – Bad Boomer logic.
A true repentance shuns the evil itself, more than the external suffering or the shame – Shakespeare
The Reaper is especially pleased to claim these people – alcoholic, druggie, promiscuous wastrels.
The West will be spared as soon as Burning Man is cancelled.
Do you want technology companies to own your body?
There is no property right without bodily first. Otherwise, what owns the property?
If you want to give up your self-ownership for magic beans, there are better forms of slave.
The hubris of assuming they know what your genitals should look like. Trust those people.
The West has too much fake money to spend on this shit.
If the abolition of suffering is the primary goal, it implies the abolition of life – which would be the only way of ensuring that nobody and nothing suffered. Bottom line transhumanism is therefore only one step away from advocating death as prophylaxis.
The techno-Rapture. You die, but you live again, forever! With jet packs!
(instead of wings)
a drugged-euphoric life are all preferable to a conscious and free life insofar as they entail less suffering or more pleasure. Even if such a life led to rapid death, it would be preferable on a purely hedonic calculus.
Hedonism is never worth it, in any true calculation.
They’re already brain dead to even consider this. Any survival instinct is dead.
Let me embrace thee, sour adversity, for wise men say it is the wisest course – Shakespeare
But there is another side to transhumanism; which is the transhumanism that denies itself and operates by deception and dishonesty.
This is the transhumanism of mainstream, modern, almost-ubiquitous totalitarianism – a transhumanism that aims at omni-surveillance and micro-control of the population.
This transhumanism sells itself as hedonic – as enhancing – but is motivated by the agenda of control. It is the strategic push for intercommunicating ‘smart’ technology, for omnipresent cameras and microphones, a society in which everyone carries a tracking device (smart phone) that monitors their activity to a fine level of discrimination – and seeks always to extend this (artificial ‘intelligence’, self-driving cars, the skies filled with drones…) – and to make it mandatory (microchip implants etc.).
The police state is in your pocket and you paid for it, multiple times.
Phones smarter than the people using them.
Mandatory – mark of the Beast.
e.g. you aren’t allowed to have a sex anymore, women, or at least, let this man in a dress tell you how to be a woman, which is so much better than a Monopoly Man doing it!
The only saving grace?
It won’t work.
They aren’t smart enough to develop technology better than God.
Pride is the first sin.
