Split long article

Might this longish entry be better presented as a series of pages? JasonS 03:34 Jan 13, 2003 (UTC)

In the interest of ensuring transhuman is NPOV: Who decides what the definition of transhumanism is?

This element of humanism, is that from huxley or someone else?

Does the man who invented the word, Julian Huxley decide the definition of Transhumanism, does one in modern times who publically states the definition decide or does the World Transhumanism Association decide?

I would like clarity as to who ultimately determines what transhumanism means because the definition used by the WTA and other groups differs. More importantly, what gives one authority or the command to be able to define in an undisputed what transhumanism is, so that other POV’s can be excluded?

For instance I have reviewed the entire transtopia.org, prometheism.net and cosmotheism.net site, and I can’t seem to figure out how you could label it as disputed in the links section?

What is to say the world transhumanism association isnt disputed?

I can see how one might label cosmotheism as white racial separatist, but prometheism.net and transtopia.org I would like more discussion as to why it is disputed as a transhumanism group. And why is Cosmotheism a disputed offshoot? Cosmotheism was developed in the 1960’s and 1970’s which came before extropy and WTA, so why is it an offshoot? I thought offshoot meant, that something existed and a branch or seed came off that plant. Can you please define offshoot and explain who decides what is or is not transhumanism?

More on this humanism element of Transhumanism, is that from huxley or someone else? Thanks.

Why does the link to cosmotheism keep getting deleted? Just because that article had a banned user associated w it doesn’t make it any less relevent. Sam [Spade] 20:56, 4 Aug 2004 (UTC)

I’d like to incorporate a mention of the Human Cognome Project into this article, as it is relevent to human brain augmentation and AI research. Any suggestions? — Dave User:Sydhart

Why is transtopia.org, prometheism.net and cosmotheism.net labelled pseudotranshuman organizations? To me that represents bias as to why those web sites would be labelled pseudo, what makes a web site pseudo?

On the front page of prometheism.net it states the following

(Prometheism is) The First Sovereign Transtopian & Neo-Eugenic Libertarian Religious-State.

In the principles sections of prometheism it states

Our Promethean Species embraces Conscious Evolution

Our immediate aim is to create a neo-eugenically enhanced race that will eventually become a new, superior species with whatever scientific means are available at the present time. In the short-term, this will be achieved via neo-eugenics, ie. voluntary positive eugenics, human cloning, germ-line engineering, gene therapy and genetic engineering.

In the long-term, when the science becomes available we intend to utilize transhuman technologies: nanotechnology, mind uploading, A/I and other variations of ultra exo-tech.

Our goal is to enable total and unlimited self-transformation, consciousness and expansion across the universe of our species.

It also states note the key words – Transhuman Technologies… and the embracing of transhumanism and extropy.

We Define neo-eugenics as conscious evolution (these words are interchangeable). Purposefully directed evolution via voluntary positive neo-eugenics (including voluntary selective breeding), cloning, genetic engineering and ultimately any and all transhuman technologies. Neo-Eugenics means harnessing all science, technology and knowledge available now or in the future, guiding it with spirituality, ethical considerations and higher consciousness, ultimately towards achieving total and unlimited self transformation. The term Neo-Eugenics embodies the sciences and philosophies involved in Biotechnology, Extropy and Transhumanism all merged in a philosophy of spiritual Conscious Evolution.

I believe removing prometheism from this page, will be cause to bring this issue to arbitration to confirm that the individual who keeps removing it obviously is biased and lacks an understanding of what transhumanism. NPOV. thats your problem brian NPOV and blatant bias.

Dnagod 22:22, 7 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Extropy and a lot of the other sites listed under manifestos are linked else where in the article, so I felt it important to also include these manifestos

Please do not revert to childish insults, and a biased personal agenda removing these links, they belong their and represent Principles which I dare say are some of the most interesting, fascinating and creative principles.

Don’t abuse your privileges here and force your agenda on this topic of transhumanism, all perspectives are welcome here whether you like it or not.

Dnagod 17:26, 8 Feb 2005 (UTC)

What makes you think transtopianism (transtopia.org) is not secular?

STOP removing these links, you are biased, emotional, unfair, unbalanced and lacking in neutrality.

These links are to stay, and you have no right to remove them. They are valid and legit links, Do not abuse your privileges on this project or you will be revoked.

Dnagod 02:55, 9 Feb 2005 (UTC)

The man who invented the word Transhumanism (Huxley), was an open, avid and published advocate of state sponsored coercive eugenics, selective breeding, and elitist eugenic communities. Therefore you are wrong, and thus the specific issue of VOLUNTARY eugenics does NOT violate in anyway, shape or form, being part of transhumanism. You are wrong, biased, unfair, unbalanced, and lacking in neutrality. Transtopia.org and prometheism.net DO NOT SUPPORT COERCIVE EUGENICS in their PRINCIPLES, THEY SUPPORT VOLUNTARY – EUGENICS – READ VOLUNTARY. Forgive the capitalization, but I do that for emphasis, not to scream.

please stop removing these links, you are biased, emotional, unfair, unbalanced and lacking in neutrality. These are not personal attacks, these are stated facts that you have not read the prometheism.net web site.

These links are to stay, and you have no right to remove them. They are valid and legit links, Do not abuse your privileges on this project.

I ask you to bring arbitration and discussion on this fact. Your censorship, bias and personal agenda will not win. Go to prometheism.net right now and find one place on this site that says prometheism supports COERCIVE EUGENICS. you will not find it anywhere. Prometheism.net clearly states that it only supports voluntary eugenics. Read the sworn oath on prometheism.net

The Sworn Oath of Prometheism (front page of prometheism.net)

We Prometheans are voluntarily coming together to purposefully direct the creation of a new post-human species. A species with higher intellect, creativity, consciousness and love of ones people. A communion of intellect and beauty, for the simple reason that it can be done. This creation is what gives us purpose and meaning. No other justification is required for this program to advance our Promethean species.

Next I want you to read the Principles of prometheism http://www.prometheism.net/principles.htm

2. Our Promethean Species embraces Conscious Evolution

Our immediate aim is to create a neo-eugenically enhanced race that will eventually become a new, superior species with whatever scientific means are available at the present time. In the short-term, this will be achieved via neo-eugenics, ie. voluntary positive eugenics, human cloning, germ-line engineering, gene therapy and genetic engineering.

5. Total Freedom, Liberty and Self-Determination

Our Libertarian religious nation is founded on the principles of total freedom of speech (including offensive language and language which hurts peoples feelings), freedom of thought, the right to bear arms, liberty, progress, productivity and the pursuit of individual happiness.

nation is VOLUNTARY ONLY. We REJECT all totalitarianism and believe COERCIVE neo-eugenics is counter to the ideal of individual freedom. The promethean governments sole purpose is to protect the rights of the individual. We DO NOT wish to STERILIZE anyone or FORCE anyone to practice neo-eugenics.

DNA or genetic capital is the most valuable commodity in the universe. Our primary goal is to promote positive and voluntary neo-eugenics by channeling national resources to the best, brightest and most creative.

We Define neo-eugenics as conscious evolution (these words are interchangeable). Purposefully directed evolution via voluntary positive neo-eugenics (including voluntary selective breeding), cloning, genetic engineering and ultimately any and all transhuman technologies. Neo-Eugenics means harnessing all science, technology and knowledge available now or in the future, guiding it with spirituality, ethical considerations and higher consciousness, ultimately towards achieving total and unlimited self transformation. The term Neo-Eugenics embodies the sciences and philosophies involved in Biotechnology, Extropy and Transhumanism all merged in a philosophy of spiritual Conscious Evolution.

This is from the principles of prometheism.net Last Updated: 3/13/03 this means that prometheism is NOT FRINGE, it does not support the fringe philosophy of FORCED COERCIVE EUGENICS. Again the capitalization is not screaming, its meant to provide emphasis. Also my comments about you not being very knowledgeable about prometheism.net and transtopia.org are not meant as personal insults or personal attacks, but as an observation.

Rand Paul selling 'NSA spy cam blocker'

 NSA  Comments Off on Rand Paul selling 'NSA spy cam blocker'
Apr 082015
 

NSA Spy Cam Blocker. Credit: Store.RandPaul.com

“That little front facing camera on your laptop or tablet can be a window for the world to see you – whether you know it or not! Stop hackers and the NSA with this simple camera blocker. Safe and practical,” the online store says of the product.

Several of the Paul products include visuals of the Constitutionincluding a T-shirt and an iPhone casewhich is a political theme for the son of libertarian icon and former Texas congressman Ron Paul.

“I am running for president to return our country to the principles of liberty and limited government,” a quote attributed to Paul says on his sitewhich broke the news the senator would run ahead of his scheduled midday in-person announcement.

The store even offers a $1,000 Paul-autographed Constitution. “It’s hard to find a greater defender of the U.S. Constitution in the Halls of Congress than Rand Paul,” the item’s description says.

But the merchandise goes beyond accessories: Paul’s branded clothing is “fashion for a cause,” his website says.

“It’s easy to be a fashion plate for the world’s biggest brands. When you wear the Rand Brand, you look good and stand for something bigger than all of us … liberty,” the site boasts, adding “Thomas Jefferson would be proud.”

Such fashion includes a T-shirt proclaiming “Don’t Drone Me, Bro!”

Even the payment options take a decidedly contemporary twist for the Kentucky senator’s campaign. In addition to credit card and PayPal choices, Paul’s website allows supporters to donate in bitcoin (the cryptocurrency boasts a strong following among a subset of libertarians).

Rand Paul: 'I am running for president'

 Misc  Comments Off on Rand Paul: 'I am running for president'

Updated: Tuesday, April 7 2015, 12:40 PM EDT

Louisville, Kentucky (CNN)- For Rand Paul, it’s all led to this moment.

Since riding the tea party wave into the Senate in 2010, Paul has carefully built a brand of mainstream libertarianism — dogged advocacy of civil liberties combined with an anti-interventionist foreign policy and general support for family values — that he bets will create a coalition of younger voters and traditional Republicans to usher him into the White House.

The test of that theory begins Tuesday when the Kentucky senator is expected to make official what has been clear for years: He’s running for president.

“I am running for president to return our country to the principles of liberty and limited government,” Paul said on his new website.

A formal announcement will come at a rally in Louisville and he’ll immediately hit the campaign trail, swinging through New Hampshire, South Carolina, Iowa and Nevada — the states that traditionally vote first in the primaries and caucuses.

Clothed in controversy: Statue sparks First Amendment debate

 Misc  Comments Off on Clothed in controversy: Statue sparks First Amendment debate
Dec 112014
 

A piece of art displayed for less than four hours on the University of Iowa campus has sparked national attention. A seven-foot-tall, sculpted set of Klu Klux Klan robes composed of articles depicting the history of racial tensions in America was on display at the university’s free speech zone, the Pentacrest on Dec. 5, inciting outrage across the campus.

Serhat Tanyolacar, a visiting assistant professor at the University of Iowa and artist of the work, said the meaning of the piece was misunderstood.

“The intent was to raise awareness on contemporary issues on racism and create open discussion on those issues,” Tanyolacar said.

University of Iowa officials were able to remove the display because Tanyolacar did not acquire the correct permits to display the piece. The university went on to say in a memo that it “considers all forms of racism abhorrent and is deeply committed to the principles of inclusion and acceptance.”

“It’s hard to start dialogue about something upsetting without showing something upsetting,” said Frank LoMonte, executive director of University of Iowa’s Student Press Law Center.

LoMonte said the University of Iowa was not in the wrong by removing the artwork due to Tanyolacar’s inability to obtain a permit for the work.

“The government does have the ability to enforce reasonable permit conditions, so long as they are not selectively enforcing,” LoMonte said.

LoMonte also said it is hard to start a conversation on something considered disturbing without showing something that is itself disturbing. The university was within its rights in removing the statue so long as the permit qualifications were the only reason they removed the piece.

“Picking and choosing who is okay to hate is a violation of First Amendment rights,” LoMonte said.

The First Amendment, which protects freedom of speech, does not address hate speech, nor protect citizens against encountering it.

NSA privacy director defends agency's surveillance

 NSA  Comments Off on NSA privacy director defends agency's surveillance
Nov 252014
 

The U.S. National Security Agencys surveillance programs are legal and under close scrutiny by other parts of the government, the agencys internal privacy watchdog said Monday in an online Q&A.

NSA surveillance and data collection programs conform to the U.S. Constitution, Rebecca Richards, the agencys first civil liberties and privacy director, wrote during an hour-plus Q&A on Tumblr.

The NSA operates under rules that ensure that its activities fall within the parameters of the Constitution, Richards wrote when asked why she believes the surveillance programs are constitutional.

The oversight regime governing NSA is extensive, spanning all three branches of government, she added. The fact that NSA created my job highlights the value and importance NSA leadership places on privacy and civil liberties protections.

Critics have said some NSA surveillance programs violate the Constitutions Fourth Amendment, prohibiting unreasonable searches and seizures by the government.

One Q&A participant asked if U.S. residents fears of being discreetly spied on are merited.

The fears are not merited, Richards wrote. NSA is a foreign intelligence agency, she wrote. Our mission is to collect critical intelligence on foreign powers or their agents necessary to defend the country.

U.S. law requires that the NSA, when targeting a U.S. citizen for foreign intelligence purposes, to obtain a court order based on a finding of probable cause to believe the intended target is a foreign power or an agent of a foreign power, she added.

One participant paraphrased Benjamin Franklin to Richards: He who gives up freedom for safety deserves neither. The questioner then asked whether the NSAs erosion of the Fourth Amendment is fair and righteous, in regard to the principles on which the United States were founded?

Richards again defended the NSA: Intelligence agencies, just like other government agencies, have a responsibility to protect privacy and civil liberties, she wrote. In the course of our operations, we take great care to protect and safeguard personal privacy.

Liberty Institute: Congress Urges Air Force To Support Religious Freedom

 Liberty  Comments Off on Liberty Institute: Congress Urges Air Force To Support Religious Freedom
Apr 172014
 

Thu, Apr 17, 2014

Members of the House of Representatives from both parties have submitted a letter to U.S. Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James, urging a revision to Air Force regulations to allow greater religious freedom in the Air Force.

The joint letter states: “We are concerned that the Air Force has not updated its regulations on religious freedom and appears to have the most restrictive policy of any military service.” In addition, it expresses concern that “Air Force religious freedom regulations and practices are inconsistent with the Constitution and with current law.” The letter also demands that the Air Force “correct this immediately” by revising Air Force regulations to ensure that the Air Force protects the religious freedom of all Airmen.

Mike Berry, Liberty Institute Senior Counsel and Director of Military Affairs, praised the policymakers’ initiative. “We are grateful that our elected officials responded so quickly and decisively to this issue,” he said. “They are rightfully concerned that the Air Force is not acting in accordance with Department of Defense policy. History demonstrates that religious freedom is vital to a strong military. With this letter, Congress is asking the Air Force to protect religious freedom in accordance with the Constitution and Department of Defense policy, which will ensure that we continue to have a strong military.”

Recently, the Air Force has been at the center of numerous controversies related to religious hostility within the military. Liberty Institute compiled many of those instances of religious hostility and, in January, provided them to the House Armed Services Committee as part of its written testimony.

Liberty Institute describes itself as “a national law firm dedicated to defending and restoring religious liberty across America in our schools, for our churches, in our military and throughout the public arena. Liberty’s vision is to reestablish religious liberty in accordance with the principles of our Founding Fathers.”

Angola: Freedom of Information Must Be Based On Constitution – Minister

 Freedom  Comments Off on Angola: Freedom of Information Must Be Based On Constitution – Minister
May 052013
 

Luanda The approach on the press freedom should follow the Constitution, which gives the judiciary power, the control of abuses that may arise from it, said Friday the minister of Justice and Human Rights, Rui Mangueira.

The minister said so when delivering a lecture entitled “Press Freedom and the national interest”, under the World Press Freedom day, marked on May 3.

According to Rui Mangueira, when there is a conflict of interest involving the press with its journalist information freedom, on the one hand, and citizens with their civil and constitutional rights, on the other hand, it is up to the judiciary to tackle the conflict.

“The conflict between freedom of information and protection of privacy, the privacy to the honour and image of persons is very frequent among us,” he stressed.

The minister also underlined that the principle of freedom of speech, as well as other principles that make up the system of fundamental rights, does not have absolute immunity, rather, it limits in other rights, which may lead to a collision of the principles.

He emphasized that the collision of the right to freedom of speech and the press with the right to the reputation occurs when information is disclosed to the public indiscriminately.

“In any situation requiring the intervention of justice, is not a responsible act to anticipate the conclusion of a process, it is important not to hurt the honour and image of citizens alleging that have simply been denounced or filed a complaint.

The event was attended by Media minister, Jos Lus de Matos and secretary of State for Media, Manuel da Conceio.

Members of board of directors of the State-owned Media organs, press attach and journalists from public and private media outlets also attended the lecture.

The world marks this year 20th anniversary of institution by UN of the press freedom.

Apr 022013
 

PHOENIX, AZ–(Marketwire – Apr 1, 2013) – Although many businesses have yet to discover the value of online marketing, Dynamix7.com notes that optimizing online presence will determine the vitality of any company in a few short years. As many companies have enlisted the help of advertising and marketing firms to maximize online presence, Dynamix7.com continues to offer digital training services that allow small business owners to not only learn the basics of online marketing, but also understand how to apply strategies to become a leader in e-commerce. As such, this company notes that many small businesses must learn the principles of search engine optimization — also known as SEO.

According to Dynamix7.com, SEO strategies continue to evolve, which is why it is essential for business owners to “jump on the bandwagon” and revisit online content. In a recent press statement, Dynamix7.com explains, “Search engine optimization requires businesses to look at content and create web-based material so that certain keywords draw the attention of leading search engine. This means, that with a little ingenuity and dedication, business owners can optimize their online presence when consumers are searching for key terms through popular search engines.”

While many companies may already have online content, a recent article from Entrepreneur suggests that many businesses may want to conduct an “SEO audit.” The article explains, “If a business website isn’t properly optimized for search, it’s most likely missing out on a significant amount of traffic from the search engines, including from potential customers.” Sharing a similar sentiment, Dynamix7.com notes that the fixes may be simple, but those in charge of online marketing efforts must be current on standard SEO practices to know what to look for when auditing a business’ online content.

For example, Entrepreneur suggests checking for broken links, a home page’s speed and howother competitors fare in relevant searches. While it may be easy to review existing content and alter it for SEO purposes, Dynamix7.com believes that it may also require businesses to become more invested in the online space.

“It is essential for business owners to not only understand the importance of online marketing efforts, such as search engine optimization, but to also know how to create fresh and compelling content that will make an impact on SEO performance. Our digital training service can help business owners learn the principles of online marketing at their own pace, allowing them to revisit e-commerce with a fresh perspective,” Dynamix7.com concludes in its press statement.

ABOUT:
