Politico: Write a transhumanist in in New York! http://www.politico.com/states/new-york/albany/story/2016/10…-in-106729 #transhumanism #Election2016 #ScienceCandidate


ALBANY — While Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have debated issues such as immigration, gun control, and health care, neither of them has weighed in on the topic of a bill of rights for cyborgs.

Voters chagrined by that oversight do, however, have another option.

America’s most popular voting guide for elections, political issues, candidates, and poll data

Posted by in categories: geopolitics, transhumanism

Last week my presidential candidacy (an openly nonreligious and transhumanist one) got a big boost when it was added to ISideWith, the most popular site for helping to match you with your best candidate. They currently only have 8 candidates featured still running. Take the 3-minute survey on their site to see who you side with now that I’ll be in the results. https://www./ And, I also participated alongside Gary Johnson, Jill Stein, Eric McMullin and others in their online debate in real time that tracked the 3rd Clinton/Trump debate last Wed. (I didn’t give many answers as I was in the middle of a campaign event that exact same moment in Baltimore, but I still chimed in some supporting science and reason). My answers start about 15 min into the debate:

ISideWith shows which political parties, candidates, and ballot initiatives match your beliefs based on the 2016 issues that are most important to you.

The Anoncast — Episode 17 — Zoltan Istvan Transhumanist Candidate for President of the United States

Posted by in categories: geopolitics, transhumanism

I’m excited to share I’ve been interviewed by the podcast of Anonymous, whose Facebook page has over 5 million likes. I believe I’m the only Presidential candidate to be interviewed by them. We go over all the areas of my 20-point political platform. I’m a supporter of many of the goals of Anonymous, and I believe in activist organizations aiming to better the world that listen to their conscience and not rules or the status quo: http://anonhq.com/anoncast-episode-17-zoltan-istvan-transhum…ed-states/ #transhumanism #ScienceCandidate #Election2016 #equality #Future #Anonymous


On this episode of The Anoncast, Alek had the chance to speak with Transhumanist Party Presidential Candidate Zoltan Istvan.

Eliminating Money, Taxes, and Ownership Will Bring Forth Technoutopia

Posted by in categories: economics, geopolitics, transhumanism

My new story for Vice Motherboard on The Venus Project, Jacque Fresco, and a Resource Based Economy. I had the honor of visiting 100 year old Jacque Fresco last week. This story is also on the cover of Vice right now: http://motherboard.vice.com/read/eliminating-money-taxes-and…chnoutopia #transhumanism #Election2016 #ScienceCandidate #ResourceBasedEconomy #JacqueFresco #VenusProject


Futurist and architect Jacque Fresco speaks in parables. If he goes on too long with a story, his 40-year partner Roxanne Meadows interjects facts to keep him on track. Fresco recently turned 100 years old, and is the oldest celebrity futurist in the world. His magnum opus is The Venus Project, a 21-acre Central Florida Eden with white dome-shaped buildings that Meadows and he hand built over three and a half decades. The sanctuary and research center is where Fresco still leads weekly seminars, which includes a tour of 10 buildings—some filled with hundreds of future city models inside them—that highlight the promise of a future world where equality and technology abound.

How I met Fresco at The Venus Project this month starts with income taxes —something I hate and aim to one day eliminate altogether for humanity. Fresco doesn’t like taxes either. While searching online about taxes, I stumbled upon Fresco’s voluminous work: over 80 years of essays, filmed lectures, books, documentaries, models, and architectural drawings. Much of Fresco’s work is anchored by his main philosophical idea: a resource-based economy, where there’s not only zero taxes, but no ownership or money either.

22 Minutes: The Independents

Posted by in categories: geopolitics, transhumanism

Canada’s favorite comedy show 22 Minutes of CBC (similar to The Daily Show) is out tonight with a new broadcast. My campaign and transhumanism is in it for a few minutes. Here’s a 4 minute YouTube clip from the TV broadcast that’s quite funny. Shows sometimes get a million views across Canada:


Is America ready for the first redneck, gun toting, mullet sporting, tiger tackling, gay polygamist president? Shaun Majumder investigates.

Meet the 2016 presidential candidate who believes humans will eventually live forever

Posted by in categories: cyborgs, economics, geopolitics, governance, law, life extension, robotics/AI, transhumanism

Circa News, a millennial site, did a story on transhumanism and my campaign. There are 3 videos embedded into this article (a general one on transhumanism, one on using tech to help the environment, and one on a Universal Basic Income):


WATCH | Zoltan Istvan thinks all sentient beings — including, but not limited to humans, artificial intelligence and cyborgs — have the right to be immortal. And that right should be protected under law.

Which is why, naturally, he decided to run for president of the United States.
