The Los Angeles Times covered my #libertarian campaign for CA governor. I do still support a libertarian version of a basic income due to coming automation--and the fact it will swallow welfare and other government programs, essentially reducing the size of government while distributing money to all residents. http://www.latimes.com/politics/essential/la-pol-ca-essential-politics-updates-for-zoltan-istvan-transhumaist-and-1487793348-htmlstory.html #future

My libertarian novel "The Transhumanist Wager" in this Yahoo! News story being compared to Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged." Transhumanism also covered, albeit not in the best light. https://news.yahoo.com/mature-enough-deal-climate-change-194506529.html

A new and extensive interview I did at New Atlas, including ideas about my #libertarian California Governor run. Libertarianism has many good ideas, but two core concepts are the non-aggression principle (NAP) and protection of private property rights--both of which I believe can be philosophically applied to the human body (and the body's inevitable transhuman destiny of overcoming disease and decay with science and technology): http://newatlas.com/zoltan-istvan-interview-transhumanism-politics/48041/
