By Brian Clowes, PhD / June 30, 2020 /

Most transhumanists emphasize only the benefits that their movement would supposedly bring to the human race.  Perhaps they omit possible problems because, like all Culture of Death movements, they lack even the most fundamental understanding of human nature.  So their primary problem seems to be not dishonesty, but ignorance.   #1.

Marie Carmichael Stopes was the United Kingdom’s answer to America’s Margaret Sanger.
