The Great Reset and Evolutionary Humanism

‘It is, however, essential that eugenics should be brought entirely within the borders of science, for, as already indicated, in the not very remote future the problem of improving the average quality of human beings is likely to become urgent; and this can only be accomplished by applying the findings of a truly scientific eugenics.”

“It (Evolutionary Humanism) will accordingly relate its ethical values to the discernible direction of evolution, using the fact of biological progress as their foundation, and shaping the superstructure to fit the principles of social advance.”

“Thus even though it is quite true that any radical eugenic policy will be for many years politically and psychologically impossible, it will be important for UNESCO to see the public mind is informed of the issues at stake so that much that now is unthinkable may at least become thinkable.”

Evolutionary Progression leading to Trans-humanism

Indeed, automation technologies are particularly well suited to a world in which human beings can’t get too close to each other or are willing to reduce their interactions. Our lingering and possibly lasting fear of being infected with a virus (COVID 19 or another) will thus speed the relentless march of automation, particularly in the fields most susceptible to automation.

In 2016 two academics from Oxford University concluded that up to 86% of jobs in restaurants, 75% of jobs in retail, and 59% of jobs in entertainment could be automatized by 2035. These 3 industries are among those hardest hit by the pandemic and in which automating for reasons of health and cleanliness will be a necessity that in turn will further accelerate the transition towards more tech and more digital.
