Gennady Stolyarov II, Chairman of the U.S. Transhumanist Party, discusses the progress made in late 2016 and early 2017 and the goals of transhumanist politics – how the advocacy of emerging technologies and life extension in a political context sets the Transhumanist Party’s approach apart from mainstream politics.
This presentation was delivered virtually on January 27, 2017, to a meeting of People Unlimited in Scottsdale, Arizona, as part of People Unlimited’s Ageless Education speaker series. After the conclusion of his remarks, Mr. Stolyarov answered several questions from the audience.
Mr. Stolyarov interviews attendees at the Restore the Fourth rally against NSA surveillance in Carson City, NV, on July 4, 2013. This successful protest is the beginning of what will hopefully become a major movement to regain essential individual freedoms and to roll back infringements upon Americans’ (and most human beings’) essential private spheres.
Thanks go to Larry Rubald for filming and for organizing the event.

Mr. Stolyarov discusses his experiences at the July 4, 2013, Restore the Fourth protest in Carson City, in opposition to the unconstitutional surveillance by the National Security Agency. He also expresses the need for more Americans to speak out and unambiguously state their disapproval of the Orwellian surveillance society that the NSA has put in place.
The protest went as smoothly as possible. It was civil and peaceful, and received general public support.
