The anti-minor-party Nevada Senate Bill 292 has advanced out of the Senate Committee on Legislative Operations and Elections on a party-line vote (3 Democrats in favor, 2 Republicans opposed). An amendment from the bill sponsor was included in the bill; Amendment No. 230 is an incremental improvement but maintains essentially insurmountable barriers for minor political parties. While the amended bill no longer raises the petition-signature threshold from 1% to 2% of the Nevada voters who voted in the last election, it does still seek to impose an impossible “equal distribution” requirement for the petition signatures and also moves the deadline for submitting petition signatures from the current third Friday in June to June 1.Read U.S. Transhumanist Party Chairman Gennady Stolyarov II’s commentary on the severe problems with these remaining requirements in Section 2 of SB292: transhumanist-party.org/2021/04/27/amended-sb292-burdens/There is still time to express opposition to Senate Bill 292, particularly to the requirement that petition signatures be equally apportioned and the earlier June 1 deadline for submitting such signatures. SB292 is already one of the most actively commented on and least popular bills of the 2021 Legislative Session, with 209 public opinions expressed in opposition and only 4 in favor. You can submit your opinion in opposition to SB292 here - www.leg.state.nv.us/App/Opinions/81st2021/ - and also e-mail the Senate Committee on Finance, where SB292 will be headed next, at SenFIN@sen.state.nv.us, as well as e-mail the Assembly Committee on Legislative Operations and Elections at AsmLOE@asm.state.nv.us. The Assembly Committee on Legislative Operations and Elections would be the committee where SB292 would be heard if it were to pass in the Senate. Please express your concerns civilly and politely but make it clear that you do not agree with any attempts to further limit minor-party ballot access. Also, please spread this article to as many constituencies as possible! People of nearly all political persuasions should be able to agree on the importance of voter choice and to abhor the injustice of intentionally restricting candidates and parties from even being available for voters to consider. #NevadaLegislature #SB292 #NevadaSB292 #BallotAccess #USTranshumanistParty #USTP #ThirdParties #VoterChoice ...

One frequently encounters the identification of human creativity and inventiveness as driving forces for progress in technology and society. In part, this identification is correct: it is through the human creative faculty―the ability to bring forth new combinations of matter and new ideas―that improvements to the human condition arise. But while creation is a necessary component to progress, it is not a sufficient component. The other required component of progress is maintenance.This is a video version of U.S. Transhumanist Party Chairman Gennady Stolyarov II’s 2010 essay, “Progress: Creation and Maintenance”. Watch it here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=SzH8PA4ea7w Read the text of “Progress: Creation and Maintenance” here: www.rationalargumentator.com/index/blog/2014/07/progress-creation-maintenance/ Join the U.S. Transhumanist Party for free, no matter where you reside: transhumanist-party.org/membership #Progress #Civilization #TechnologicalProgress #SocietalProgress ...

From Gennady Stolyarov II, Chairman of the U.S. Transhumanist Party:One of the highly problematic aspects of contemporary Western societies is the widespread aversion to individuals having “unstructured time” – for which no conventions or prescribed routines dictate how it will be spent. This is a mistaken distaste and, indeed, a dangerous one. Unstructured time is not only the source of human progress; it is also essential for people to develop their own individualities and flourish as unique human beings.Watch my video, “Unstructured Leisure and Progress”, here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=eX8OKqBebhE This is the video version of an essay of mine, “Unstructured Leisure and Progress”, originally published on May 7, 2010, on The Rational Argumentator - rationalargumentator.com/issue247/unstructuredleisure.html - and republished in Issue No. 5 of Immortalists Magazine in May 2020 - www.flipsnack.com/BDEAACF6AED/im-may-jun-draft/full-view.html. This essay was also used as part of the course material prepared for the Tekedia Institute Mini-MBA Program for students in Nigeria, as part of the unit on Exponential Technologies and the Singularity - www.tekedia.com/mini-mba-faculty-for-exponential-technologies-and-singularity/. The concept of unstructured leisure is vitally important especially during the time of a pandemic which has created chronic preoccupation with immediate pressures to an unprecedented extent. How will our civilization reclaim the unstructured leisure time so vital to continued progress? We start by rediscovering the value of unstructured leisure. #progress #civilization #UnstructuredLeisure #philosophy #SelfImprovement #discovery #FreeTime ...

The Nevada Secretary of State’s Office seems to have upgraded its operations and issues paper certificates to minor political parties now. The Nevada Transhumanist Party has been officially registered since August 31, 2015, and now we have this Certificate of Minor Party Organization that recognizes our most recent filing and current status. Also, note the bristlecone pines depicted near the State of Nevada seal. These are the longest-living individual (non-clonal) trees in the world, and it is fitting that the Nevada Transhumanist Party would have them on its certificate. #NevadaTranshumanistParty #USTranshumanistParty #MinorPoliticalParty #transhumanism #transhumanistpolitics #Nevada ...

This presentation by U.S. Transhumanist Party Chairman Gennady Stolyarov II, originally prepared for the Biohackers Assemble conference on December 5, 2020, focuses on the successful effort by the U.S. Transhumanist Party and Nevada Transhumanist Party to achieve amendments to Nevada Assembly Bill 226 in May 2019. The sponsor of Assembly Bill 226 had sought for the bill to prohibit even voluntary microchip implants, but a determined effort spreadheaded by transhumanists prevented this from occurring.Watch this presentation here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=9zzT2VEUZaE ReferencesCyborg and Transhumanist Forum – May 15, 2019 - transhumanist-party.org/2019/05/27/cyborg-transhumanist-forum-video/Testimony of Anastasia Synn at the Senate Judiciary Committee – April 26, 2019 - www.youtube.com/watch?v=kXGessk5c24Become a member of the USTP for free, no matter where you reside: transhumanist-party.org/membership/ #USTranshumanistParty #TranshumanistPolitics #NFC #RFID #MorphologicalFreedom #cyborg #Nevada #biohackers ...

Members of the U.S. Transhumanist Party have been e-mailed their ballots for our Constitutional Reform Vote #2. Official ballot options can be viewed here: transhumanist-party.org/2020/12/23/constitutional-vote-2-ballot-options/ A total of 15 questions are currently under consideration. The 7-day electronic voting period will occur until 12:01 a.m. U.S. Pacific Time on December 30, 2020. These important reform provisions to the U.S. Transhumanist Party Constitution were developed as a result of the ideas discussed at the USTP Reform Summit of November 28-29, 2020. The purpose of these reforms is to keep troublemakers out of positions of prominence (Officer or candidate roles), establish eligibility criteria for Officers and candidates, improve internal USTP governance, revise obsolete information, and authorize the formation of a non-political affiliate organization or organizations in the future to enable a broader reach in different venues. If you are a member of the USTP, please vote and encourage other USTP members to vote! Contact us if you did not receive the e-mail with your link to vote or if you are having any technical issues casting your ballot. We encourage member participation in this USTP vote as in all others. #USTranshumanistParty #USTP #electronicvoting #transhumanism #evoting #TranshumanClub ...
