2045 Group To Form Political Party
|Dmitry Itskov's 2045 Movement in Russia have decided to create a Russian political party “Evolution 2045”.|
They will develop, promote and implement a new ideology and strategy of bodily and spiritual human evolution, in order to reach a new stage of human civilization.
They will develop, promote and implement a new ideology and strategy of bodily and spiritual human evolution, in order to reach a new stage of human civilization. This phase will be associated with the a radical widening of human creativity and its cybernetic immortality.
Dmitry Itskov, founder of the 2045 movement had written that he wanted to turn the 2045 movement from an internet community into a real force, so the announcement of the Evolution 2045 party is not entirely surprising. The "2045" Initiative was founded by internet entrepreneur Itskov in February 2011 in partnership with leading Russian scientists.
At the party's website, they have listed their goals:
1. We will develop, promote and implement a new ideology and strategy of bodily and spiritual human evolution, in order to reach a new stage of human civilization. This phase will be associated with the a radical widening of human creativity and its cybernetic immortality.
2. We will radically change the image and status of the scientist, researcher and engineer in our society. We want create an efficient system that encourages the development and work of young scientists. We want to foster a "factory" of bright minds in order to grow the new Tsiolkovskies and Einsteins - the true stars of the future society.
3. We will attempt to implement a cultural revolution, achieve a sharp rise in the level of mass education, and promote the establishment of special training programs for schools and universities.
4. We will support the efforts aimed at improving the level of mass culture, spiritual and moral health of society and spiritual development, without any restrictions on the freedom of speech, creativity and self-expression. We want to create conditions for a new inter-faith dialogue on the strategy for human evolution.
5. We will establish an international organization on the scale of UNESCO or even the United Nations in order to bring together the efforts of political parties and social movements of the world under the auspices of our ideology of the future.
6. We will promote the formation of a new intellectual elite: people capable of new, futuristic ways of thinking, free from dogma and ready-made ideas, people ready to take responsibility for the steady and purposeful development of humanity, preservation and development of human intelligence on a cosmic scale.
7. We will develop all forms of cooperation with existing transhumanist, scientific and educational organizations and foundations in order to implement a new strategy for human evolution. We will help in the creation of charitable foundations supporting the ideology of bodily and spiritual evolution and its possible immortality.
8. We will organize an international research and development center for the implementation of a mega-project to create avatar technology and medical technologies of the new generation. We will focus on the creation of cybernetic limbs and organs in order to transfer individual human consciousness to a more capable carrier - an artificial body. We also aim to eventually create a new medicine of immortality.
9. We will introduce a legislative initiative "on Universal Right for Cybernetic Immortality" that would be implemented along as such technologies develop. Human desire for immortality is the natural extension of the will to live.
10. We will develop and implement a social program to ensure access to the world’s population to the latest technology of medical prosthetic limbs, sight and hearing while the technology of a complete artificial body is created. We need to ensure that people with disabilities can become people with extra abilities!
11. We shall start a broad discussion and the scientific study of philosophical, ethical, and humanistic psychological problems of a transhumanist and anthropological future of humanity. We’ll seek out expert opinions and track the consequences of any decisions during the implementation of a new strategy for human evolution.
12. We will contribute to the development, discussion and public acceptance of mankind's space expansion strategy with the development of "avatar technologies" for the next 100 years.
According to the party, ultimately the goal is to inspire other countries to follow suit, and compete not in the arms race, but in the race for building a bright future for mankind.
"We invite everyone who shares our ideology of the future to support the idea of creating an international political union by organizing a party similar to "Evolution 2045" in their country. We will be happy to provide the necessary informational support."
