La superstition met le monde entier en flammes; la philosophie les éteint.

Superstition sets the whole world in flames; philosophy quenches them.

Putting together anti-statist and anti-nationalist essays has been one of my biggest objectives publishing online. Challenging prejudices and established norms has also led many to embracing the idea of transhumanism/posthumanism, the idea that we can become more than human using technology and that this is a virtuous activity.

To support in disseminating essays, sci-fi literature and other contributions in this direction, I have decided to give much of it away as free bonus material added to existing books that can be found on Amazon. To have a look at changes and to see what is being offered in my published work right now, have a glimpse at my updated store over at Amazon.

I have recently been reviewing Jacque Fresco’s famous Venus Project at the most influential transhumanist publication h+ Magazine, and I am hoping for the review to make an impact since many people have pledged their support for the Venus Project, particularly online. I am in solidarity with these people, as I believe reconstructing society to cope with our rapidly advancing technology is very important, although I do not hesitate to criticize some of the obvious flaws in Jacque’s thesis, as is necessary in any review.

But, between the two, one has already clearly […]

Whatever you may think of it, everyone – politicians most of all – must respect the Brexit vote. The British people are not a bunch of children who need to be stood in the corner by know-it-all politicians because they voted “wrong”. They have voted, albeit by a slim margin, to no longer be part of the European Union. As far […]

In my experience (oh the irony…), there is a battle of experience vs knowledge. As someone who studied International Relations at university, but has little to no political experience or travel history abroad, I may seem like someone right out of an ivory tower. This would be a good ad hominem against me in a […]

Immanuel Wallerstein asserted in a recent post that the gap between American power and political rhetoric is growing. This can be related to the the Syrian problem at the heart of current US foreign policy. The US is no longer the dominant power in the world. However, it refuses to accept this, International Relations expert Wallerstein wrote at the start of June. […]
