    Trans-humanism is pretty much the domination over all life. Hardly anarchist.

    And Liberate Not Exterminate is hardly trans-humanist in any capacity.

    Y’all seem mad confused these days…

  • Zack says:

    Transhumanism is the belief or theory that humans can evolve past current limitations, particularly by means of science and technology. That doesn’t sound inherently like “domination over all life”, but I can appreciate where you’re coming from. At times science and technology have been pretty explicit in their desire for domination over life.

    Liberate Not Exterminate is of interest to the conversation between anarchism and transhumanism.

    I think you are confused about things here. We don’t always agree with everything we read. Reading controversial stuff makes for the most interesting conversations. If this is uninteresting to you that is perfectly understandable.

    some of us are pretty skeptical. but we like to challenge our beliefs to make sure they are still valid.
