#026 - Libby Emmons (What it Means to Be Human)
Libby Emmons is a writer and playwright that recently wrote a piece on Transhumanism for Quillette.
We discuss whether transhumanism is synonymous with oppression; free speech; robot sex; utilitarianism and the ethics of a superintelligent AI govt; what a post human world might look like; free-range parenting; convenience vs human autonomy and the fragility of infastructure; transgenderism, trans rights and transhumanism; eco-anarchism, earthships and self-sustainability; artificial wombs and the future of reproduction; and what it might truly mean to be human.
