I'm in the very early stages of preparing a campaign to try to run in the 2016 election for US President. I'll be doing it as a transhumanist for the Transhumanist Party, a political organization I recently founded that seeks to use science and technology to radically improve the human being and the society we live in.
I have long read about capital. I have read it as a philosophical problem, as a mind-broadening concept, and as a powerful geo-political force. If we are to train a generation of students to make decisions that shape the world in an effective manner, we must help one another understand the principal forces that shape the world around us.
My general philosophy is to do some real good in the short run, while learning how to scale that up in the long run -- to the entire planet in maybe 20 years. I'm also very committed to helping people from the bottom up, to give people a break that rarely get one, and to help give a voice to the voiceless.
