Technorealism

I admit freely that I am a technoutopian transhumanist. I tend to think that t3k got us into this hole, and unless we want to kill off a few billion people and revert to being hunter gatherers, it's the only thing that can get us out of it.

Technorealism offers their own manifesto, that I conditionally agree with, on some points. In any case, it makes for interesting, worthwhile reading.

Overall, I think they're too ludditory for my tastes- not to call them luddites. I admit openly, that I fall into the visionary category. I'd like to think that the Internet will lead to a Stateless society- I practically realize that it probably won't. However, I think that a Stateless society would be an improvement- so I will work with technology to achieve that goal.

They are against the junking of many traditions. I have no problem slaughtering traditions to get my way. But I do this with the hope that staunch defenders, like the people at technorealism, will work against me, at least on some points.

My view of reality isn't the only one. And it's definitely the best- for people that think, act, and believe as I do. That's not everyone. But it's still a set of laudable goals, which is why I work towards them.
