The natural conclusion to progressive leftism can only be a transcendence of humanity – otherwise known as transhumanism. Without any appreciation of a metaphysical or spiritual force, this transformation has to be bought about through, initially – social engineering (the current phase), and ultimately – scientific engineering (genetic modification). The latter (and most mortifying) has been understood and written about or explored by artists such as Aldous Huxley (Brave New World), Michel Houellebecq (Atomised), George Orwell (1984), George Lucas (THX 1138) and many others.
Unconsciously, or for the conspiratorially minded – consciously, the social engineering phase began with the French Revolution and the inversion of social order, which eventually led to a degeneration of social morality. Later, an awe-inspiring switching of gears would take place, led by the Frankfurt School, whom were equipped with far more than a “grass-roots” desire for revolution. The thinkers of the Frankfurt School would wield science – particularly behavioural psychology, to chip away at humanity itself. Through an infiltration of the institutions, they would weaponise all forms of education and begin the process of indoctrination that must necessarily precede the acceptance of genetical engineering of humans to fit the Utopian ideal – equality.
It is important to take a moment here to make a brief point that seems self-evident to traditionalist thinkers. Equality is a legitimate social construct, and it can only be bought about through the alteration of what it means to be human, for it simply does not come about naturally. It is only through sheer force – social, political and militaristic (totalitarian) that Equality can be attempted, and so far, it has failed time and time again. This comes as no surprise to traditionalist, religious and conservative thinkers, as they embrace human nature in its entirety (although some such thinkers are painfully limited by this understanding, which can result in savagery on their behalf).
However, for the progressive, failure to enforce equality through psychology only breeds an intense frustration and leads them to the realisation that it is human nature itself that must be fundamentally altered, and that that alteration must also be genetic. This realisation is at best expressed in transhumanism and at worst in otherkins (a freak subculture of emotionally fragile youths that identify as non-human and seek acceptance for their delusion).
In all of this – as with all things human, there does exist a bitter irony (and one that I’m sure the more enlightened of progressives are well aware of), and that is: What would make us think that the genetic modification of humans to conform to the idealism that is Equality would not be corrupted by the power hungry? For some, this may be precisely the plan… While for many of the blind believers, the paradox remains elusive as they refuse to come to terms with the inevitabilities of human nature.
