  1. My impression of transhumanism is that it is technological eugenics. Although I’m not sure how close that comes to an apt description, as I don’t know much about it. Actually just looking around in order to respond to your comments , I learned the ‘movement’ is ‘larger’ than I presumed apparently there is a domestic political party established enough to have fielded a presidential candidate and affiliates with other similar political organizations multinationally. Ive found what looks like a philosophic critique and perhaps a discussion on the bioethics of transhumanism. : https://academic.oup.com/jmp/article/42/3/237/3817401

  3. The part I liked the best in the essays was where the author was discussing how the west’s reaction related to changes in the societal zeitgeist, philosophy and how it shows the weakening of Lockean based view to a more Hobbes focused frame.

  4. There seem to be some people who just irrationally hate Ayn Rand. Every now and then one of them will come up with a hit piece like this. As long as there are a lot of people who don't understand Rand very well, there will be people with questions as a result of such hit pieces. We just have to keep answering and explaining as we need to.

  5. The best refutation is to say it is simply a hateful hit piece. Refutation is for people of reason and good will, not for scribbles on bathroom walls or the equivalent. Don't be goaded into dead-end discussions framed by the enemy.
