    Anarcho-Transhumanism, often shortened to AnH+ or @H+, is a Prgess.png culturally progressive and economically ambiguously left-wing to post-economic Awaj.png Anarchist ideology which is stemmed from Anin.png Anarcho-Individualism.

    The central idea to Anarcho-Transhumanism is that, rather than being just a combination of Awaj.png Anarchism and Transh.png Transhumanism, the two are in fact intertwined and should be synchronized.

    They hold the idea that progress should not be held back by "dogmatic and oppressive institutions" (i.e. Corp.png corporations and/or Sec.png governments). Rather, innovation and improvement of the human condition (via nanotechnology and cybernetics) can be brought about by emphasizing survival (in fact, abolishing death completely) and cooperation, instead of competition and conquest.

    They may advocate various praxis to advance their ideals, including computer hacking, three-dimensional printing, or biohacking.



    The fundamental historical roots of Antr.png Anarcho-Transhumanism are deeply grounded in the Cball-Russia.png Russian artistic avant-garde movements, which flourished in the context of the broad spectrum of Awaj.png anarchist, Soc-h.png socialist, and Ormarxf.png communist movements that immediately preceded the Russian Revolution, and very briefly followed it until the oppressive Stalin.png Stalinist dictatorship gained political control and suppressed them. This very broad radical cultural milieu saw the birth of the artistic and literary Futurism, alongside a wide range of related movements such as Rayonism, Cubo-Futurism, Suprematism.png Suprematism, Orphism. The visual arts and poetry of these Russian avant-garde movements were dominated by a broad mythology of Technocracy.png technoscientific progress, a visionary modernity deeply rooted in Awaj.png anarchist and Soc-h.png socialist philosophy. Images of trains were widespread, as symbols of a revolutionary modernity that collectively drives humanity towards the future, through a new level of connectedness that transcended state and class boundaries. Other dominant iconological themes included the human body as mechanism and the blending of body and machine (from Oskar Schlemmer's mechanical ballet figures to Honk.png Capek's robots), the myth of electrification as modernization and as metaphor for revolutionary political power, the image of the city as dynamical hub of radical societal transformations and Technocracy.png technoscientific innovations, and the early developments of a mythology of outer space and of the connection between human progressive destiny and the exploration of the cosmos.

    It is within this general cultural and political background that the philosophical movement of Cosmism (sometimes referred to as Ectrans.png Biocosmism) flourished. This was the direct origin of modern Transh.png Transhumanism, and it exhibited several of the most important themes one encounters in its contemporary forms. Like its modern transhumanist counterpart, Russian Cosmism was a very composite movement, where some representative figures stirred closer to CCRU.png mysticism and religion, while others embraced Awaj.png anarchist, Soc-h.png socialist, and Ormarxf.png communist ideals. Cosmist thinkers advocated the radical extension of human life, the conquest of immortality through scientific means, the merging of human and machine, and the quest for space exploration and the creation of human settlements outside the Earth. The Cosmist philosophical movement in turn deeply influenced the scientists who in later decades realized the Soviet space program, starting with Konstantin Tsiolkovsky, the father of Soviet Cosmonautics.

    The convergence of Awaj.png Anarchism and Soc-h.png Socialism with Cosmism and Futurism that took place in the years leading up to the Russian Revolution remains a profound source of inspiration for the modern movements combining Awaj.png Anarchism and Transh.png Transhumanism.

    Contemporary History, Influences and Thought

    Its modern philosophy draws heavily from the Anin.png individualist anarchism of Philan.png William Godwin, Anego.png Max Stirner and Awaj.png Voltairine de Cleyre as well as the Cyborgfem.png cyberfeminism presented by Donna Haraway in A Cyborg Manifesto.

    Another influence is the CCRU.pngCyberfem.pngAccel.pngAcidcomf.pngPoststruct.png Cybernetic Culture Research Unit (CCRU) formed 1995 at Warwick University in Coventry, England and lasted until 2003 which included notable people such as Cyberfem.png Sadie Plant, Landian Accelerationism.png Nick Land and Acidcomf.png Mark Fisher, famous for it's idiosyncratic "theory-fiction", and which their work involved things such as psychedelia, Accel.png accelerationism, esotericism, rave culture and Jungle music, cybernetics and cyberpunk media genre.

    Cyberpunk and it's subsequent sub-genres have heavily influenced Antr.png Anarcho-Transhumanism, notably Biopunk, Nanopunk and Solarpunk.

    Much of early Antr.png Anarcho-Transhumanist thought was a response to Anprim.png Anarcho-Primitivism. However, some Antr.png Anarcho-Transhumanists are Postciv.png Post-Civ.

    Some aesthetics commonly associated with Antr.png Anarcho-Transhumanism, especially among online users, are the Vaporwave.png Vaporwave, Outrun and Kaybug aesthetics, notable for their retro-futuristic technological influences, indicating that Antr.png Anarcho-Transhumanism isn't just about modern technology, but also the utilization of much of the technology that previous generations associated with being "futuristic" at the time. Older tech is also often used in @H+ praxis as it is less easier to track activity than more modern devices.

    Antr.png Anarcho-Transhumanism may be interpreted either as Anti-Humanism.png criticism of, or an POSTHUMANISMICON.png extension of Humanismpix.png humanism, because it challenges what being human means.

    Relationship to Transhumanism

    Borrowing from Antech.png techno-anarchism, anarchist activist Antr.png William Gillis and others argue that the disruptive nature of emergent technologies are either incompatible or extremely dangerous with hierarchical structures of today, including representative or majoritarian democracy. Failure to challenge physical and social conditions together has been argued to risk Captrans.png oligarchic transhumanism, Anprim.png primitivism, or even VHMent.png extinction.

    Antr.png Anarcho-Transhumanists also criticize non-anarchist forms of transhumanism such as Nattrans.png Nazi Transhumanism and Libtrans.png Libertarian Transhumanism as incoherent and unsurvivable due to their preservation of the state. They view such instruments of power as inherently unethical and incompatible with the acceleration of social and material freedom for all individuals. Antr.png Anarcho-Transhumanism is Anticap.png anti-capitalist, arguing Cap.png capitalist accumulation of wealth would lead to dystopia while partnered with Transh.png transhumanism. Antr.png Anarcho-Transhumanism advocates for equal access to advanced technologies that enable morphological freedom and space travel.

    Individual Antr.png Anarcho-Transhumanists may or may not be singularitarians, variously considering an anarchist society and hypothesized singularity events as prerequisites, mutually exclusive, or inevitable outcomes of one another.

    Individual rights and social values

    Morphological freedom

    Morphological freedom is widely supported, especially in opposition to bio-chauvinism. Adding to anarchism's objections to the coercive power structures, transhumanist anarchism argues against their influence on the availability and viability of the means of exercising autonomy over oneself.

    Racism, misogyny, and transphobia are similarly rejected.


    Active opposition to surveillance and techniques such as facial recognition and biometrics are widespread.

    Within an established egalitarian society, presumably capable of equiveillance, some scope of total history may be desirable to facilitate knowledge and decision-making, both individually and collectively.


    Citing evidence of cognition in nonhuman animals, they are generally held to deserve protection from suffering. Support varies for personhood, rights, and capacity to participate in society, depending on species and sometimes degree of uplifting.

    Opposition to substrate chauvinism

    Anarcho-Transhumanist proponents of artificial intelligence and/or mind uploading value the continued autonomy of such conscious beings, and advocate against bio-chauvinism in anticipation of such issues.


    Opposition to Absentee Ownership


    Anarcho-Transhumanists advocate a variety of economic systems, with the common theme of rejecting systems based on absentee ownership of land and the means of production, such as Cap.png Capitalism, ML.png state socialism, and AuthSoc.png Authoritarian Communism. All Anarcho-Transhumanists are anti-capitalist, owing to anarchism's understanding of capitalism as a hierarchical system with capitalists and landlords as de-facto rulers.

    Authoritarian Socialism/Communism

    Government-mediated socialist and communist systems are similarly rejected, with the government and its agents replicating the role and issues with absentee owners.

    Intellectual Property

    With the rejection of proprietarianism comes the abolition of intellectual property. In addition to the problems cited by other anarchists, Anarcho-Transhumanists see numerous conflicts between intellectual property and an individual's self-determination that arise from emerging technologies. The presence of software or hardware components that are considered the intellectual property of others in a prosthetic device, in effect, means the partial ownership of one's body by another.

    Proposed alternatives

    Communalism and Libertarian Municipalism

    Bckchn.png Libertarian municipalism and communalism, especially as described in Bckchn.png Murray Bookchin's Post-Scarcity Anarchism, are a common starting point for Anarcho-Transhumanist economics.

    Libertarian Socialism

    Libsoc.png Libertarian socialism and Ormarxf.png communism are commonly supported systems, possibly made more viable by a transition to post-scarcity. This transition could be facilitated by manufacturing techniques enabled by 3D Printing and nanofabrication.

    Auxiliary economic systems

    While futarchy as originally conceptualized is incompatible with anarchism's rejection of representative governance and elected officials, a prediction market not mediated by elected officials could be considered as a tool of informing decisions. Trust and reputation metrics based on public or personal records may also be useful, whether arranged as a market or otherwise. These systems can be cited as a supplement to a typical market or gift economy, often to bridge the gap between scarce and post-scarce demands. Spimes or blockchains may be used to track stakeholdership over goods and infrastructure.

    Personality and Behaviour

    AnH+ basically acts in a similar manner to Transh.png Transhumanism, but with Awaj.png Anarchist personality traits.

    How to Draw

    Flag of Anarcho-Transhumanism

    Anarcho-Transhumanism is represented with a flag that's blue, specifically ultramarine (drawing from the doppler effect on light, aka "blueshift", a metaphor for acceleration and progress), and black (in typical Anarchist fashion).

    1. Draw a ball,
    2. Fill the bottom-right half of the ball in black,
    3. Fill the top-left half in ultramarine blue,
    4. Add the eyes (one normal eye and one red, transhumanist eye), and you're done!
    5. (Optional) Draw a grey pipe that goes from the red eye to the back of the ball.
    Color Name HEX RGB
    Black #202020 32, 32, 32
    Ultramarine #0000FE 0, 0, 254
    Red #FF0019 255, 0, 25
    Grey #8E8E8E 142, 142, 142
