The Transhumanist Party wants YOU!
The Transhumanist Party is a new political organisation in the UK, part of a network of similar groups around the world, committed to positive social change through technology. Transhumanism is the idea that we must improve ourselves and society using the most effective tools available. To go beyond what we have been, in order to overcome the world’s problems and create a better future.
We will work toward that vision by building an organisation which not only pursues innovative policy, but also strives to become an example of new approaches to problem solving and decision making. For example, Party policy is developed by the membership, rather than by the leadership. In other words, membership means actually having the chance to make and vote for policy, and to influence the party’s development. It also means being a part of something historically significant: A new party dedicated to bringing politics into the 21st Century.
You can see a copy of the Transhumanist Party Principles below. Anyone who agrees with them and who is legally eligible to join a UK political party can do so via the link below. If you are not eligible to join this or any UK political party as a full member, you can still join as a non-voting supporter.

We are still in the earliest stages of setting up the party, and in the next two weeks will be deciding whether we yet have enough support to send out 20,000 leaflets about Transhumanist ideas, in support of an independent electoral candidate. If enough people join now that’s exactly what we’ll do, so there is a small slice of history in your hands. You can help make this happen. Join us!
Transhumanist Party Principles
1. Evidence, Science, and Technology
All policy will as far as possible be evidence-based rather than ideology-based. The Party shall support and advocate science and technology, and exists to improve the human and societal condition through the use of technological tools. TP shall strive to create and implement technologies including but not limited to anti-ageing, rejuvenation medical technology, a policy of making people “Better Than Well” if they want, artificial and augmented intelligence, and other augmentations of human capabilities.
2. Bright Green
TP shall use all means to work toward the abolition of unnecessary and involuntary suffering across society and throughout nature where appropriate, with particular emphasis on reforming and encouraging responsible practice in economic enterprises such as farming. The Party is deemed to be Bright Green in the sense of advocating the use of high technology to minimise, and where possible reverse, the negative impact of humanity on the life of earth.
3. Personal Freedom, Social Justice
TP advocates liberal social policy whereby all acts between mentally competent consenting adult citizens are legal. Furthermore, any mentally competent adult citizen may do to themselves as they will. These freedoms apply insofar as there is no identifiable victim and no extra-personal law broken. We advocate these freedoms in the context of strong social support for society’s weakest members, and base policy on the principle “Nobody Deserted”. All citizens shall have a right to sustenance, clothing, shelter, energy, healthcare, transport, education, and access to information resources. TP also advocates that all citizens must be able to contribute to society, in their own fashion, without blemish to their dignity or sense of self worth. Where the combination of personal freedoms and a right to guaranteed support would be untenable, then citizens exercising those freedoms may forego social support.
