Nature will kill us if we don’t fight back.

Zoltan is fighting back.

Read The Book

Zoltan Istvan, a Hungarian-American writer and futurist, announced in 2014 that he would run for president of the United States in the 2016 election, as the founder and head of the Transhumanist Party. Istvan’s platform was simple: “[T]o use science and technology to radically improve the human being and the society we live in.” He wishes to “[c]reate a cultural mindset in America that embracing and producing radical technology and science is in the best interest of our nation and species.” This includes designing appropriate safeguards so technology is not used to exploit people “as we transition to the transhuman era.” His primary goal, however, is immortality, “to do everything possible to make it so this country’s amazing scientists and technologists have resources to overcome human death and aging within 15-20 years.”
