[New York, NY, September 14, 2019] The spirited debates in the world’s first formal Transhumanist Party Primary for President of the United States were, at times, too spirited to be productive. In an effort to make this election more fulfilling and productive, the USTP has convened a Task Force to develop a global initiative designed to facilitate consensus-building conversations.
The USTP is excited to announce The Transhuman Quest Initiative – its first global initiative to help elevate the Transhuman narrative and attitude, especially during this polarizing time of elections, towards a kinder, wiser, and more optimistic dialogue immediately and into the future.
USTP’s Director of Admissions and Public Relations, Dinorah Delfin says that this initiative aims to, “…harness and upcycle the energy of the membership by releasing high-minded questions and/or polls periodically.” The members’ answers will steer the conversation and activities that the Task Force will monitor to determine the most relevant issue to research and pose questions about next.
A soft launch begins the week of September 13th to the 19th. During this week, the THQ Task Force will post the First Official Transhuman Quest(ion) to spark a conversation about the topic of “Otherness and Prejudice”.
On Friday, September 19th, we will launch the Transhumanist Quest Initiative broadly. This Initiative’s First Principle is to seek consensus, so it will insist on productive comments and posts in the threads and remain committed to finding a majority consensus before moving to a new issue or topic.
Ms. Delfin, along with Party Officers Pavel Ilin, John Stifter, and Tom Ross, agree that facilitating a positive and results-driven platform to find consensus on the issues our members care about is the best way to fight the negativity that can otherwise fill that void.
Though shared widely between all state and local USTP Social Media pages, the Initiative’s primary platform for discussion will be the USTP (Transhumanist Party) Facebook Group. All members are encouraged to steer the conversation by weighing-in on all questions, especially those Transhumanist issues they most care about.
