Editor’s note: The U.S. Transhumanist Party/Transhuman Party is featuring this proposal from our member Hank Pellissier, for a new site called Paradise2040. This website will focus on the abolition and gradual ways to get there within the next twenty-one years. Article IV of the Transhumanist Bill of Rights Version 3.0 supports this endeavor. This is also an important current in transhumanist thought that could, as Mr. Pellissier explains, bring more support to the movement. Transhumanists have differing views on what the main aims of transhumanism are. The U.S. Transhumanist Party / Transhuman Party, as an organization that values diversity and pluralism of thought encourages any of its members who agree with Mr. Pellissier’s proposal to work with him in creating the Paradise2040 web site.
