Meanwhile, the movers and shakers of our region—those corporate power brokers—don’t utter a word of protest. There appears to be a tacit understanding that this is how business is done in Birmingham—and this is apparently the new definition of regional cooperation. This troubles me.

A pop techno-philosopher and volcano boarder, Zoltan Istvan is the founder and 2016 presidential candidate for the Transhumanist Party, a techno-futurist movement whose No. 1 aim is to "overcome human death and aging within 15-20 years." In other words, Zoltan Istvan is a Marvel villain.
After building a following with his novel The Transhumanist Wager—a sort-of Silicon Valley version of Atlas Shrugged—Istvan decided that the best way to turn America into a techno-utopia was to get into politics. His campaign is basically an extension of his novel, focused on attaining immortality through biological advancement and mind uploading.
But what makes the Transhumanist Party platform so surreal is that all that lofty futurism is combined with more mundane political concerns: First, ensure that all citizens have the morphological freedom to cyber-alter their own bodies as they choose; then institute a flat tax. Create national initiatives to tackle the threats of artificial intelligence, asteroids, and plagues; then create a federal mandate for free preschools nationwide
