Gab CEO Andrew Torba explains what transhumanism is, and why the nihilists in Big Tech are pursuing it.
“These Silicon Valley elites, these oligarchs, this Party of Davos they believe that they are a superior race to the rest of us,” Torba said. “They unironically believe this.”
“These people believe they are supreme to us plebes,” he said, arguing transhumanists in Silicon Valley want to alter biology to be more dominant.
“The first thing that goes away with transhumanism is equality because with transhumanism is they are modifying and liberating human beings from biology,” Torba said.
“Obviously the reason this is very dangerous is, whoever controls the chips controls the minds of the people with the chips,” Gorba said.
“This is not conspiracy theory,” said Stephen K. Bannon. “This is not wing nut talk.”
Bannon explained the idea of technological singularity has been a pursuit of the global elite and the Chinese Communist Party for decades.
“The concept is there is something beyond man,” said Bannon. “And that ‘beyond man’ is some sort of merger or kit connectivity to artificial intelligence, advanced chip design.”
“This is actually going on and it’s talked about ad nauseam,” he said. “At the highest levels.”
Bannon said the concept is laid out in Yuval Noah Harari’s Homo Deus, which examines “what might happen to the world when old myths are coupled with new godlike technologies.”
Torba said the best way to beat back the tech tyrants is “by engaging with other people and speaking freely.”
“Realize you’re not alone,” he said. “Then you become empowered as individuals and see other people want to start doing something about it.”
