Survival Power Vs. Survival Anxiety: Life As A Civil Right By Carl Carlyle - Essay

Updated: Apr 28, 2022

The terrifying state of survival anxiety that humans have been suffering from throughout history is ever-present. In thousands of years of human existence, the struggle to overcome survival-anxiety, by achieving survival power, is a daily occurrence.

The anxiety caused by the threat of global warming is feeding the need for new solutions to the problem. Transhumanist-immortalism offers a new plan for increasing survival power based on deep scientific research.

Transhumanism states clearly that life-extension is the solution. The right to choose how long you wish to live is a civil right to be fought for and achieved by law. The legal foundation has already been laid down for many years, although very few know about it as yet.

Portland's KGW news station, recently reported that a local high school is dedicated to students' civil rights. The school says they are “committed to ensuring that ALL students are afforded a safe learning environment by prohibiting harassment based upon gender, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, religion or disability." Great, but what about the harassment we face, based on the uncontrolled state of mortality in which we live?

Starting now, the world must begin to hear about the politics of transhumanism, in which life is seen as a civil right. Survival anxiety is feeding off this lack of control of survival. We need our civil right to live as long as we wish. Life must be a civil right!

If someone wants to choose a normal, brief life-span, no problem. That is their legal right. On the other hand, individuals not wanting to suffer a brief, uncontrolled life-span, should also have the legal right to extend it indefinitely, if they wish.

From this new, radical point of view, mortality is an undemocratic state of being. It feeds on survival-anxiety. If every citizen in a democracy can choose how long they wish to live, there should be government support based on one’s chosen lifespan; whether that is eighty or indefenitely, greater public support for this effort should be deeply embedded in the public mind.

New political initiatives are starting to spread this message. In the 2024 election, there will be Transhumanist candidates boldly talking about a new scientific narrative. One focuses on the choice of scientific survival power, or another, where we continue to live in the traditional survival anxiety state.

It’s a choice we must offer on election ballots. And, of course, there will be opposition.

Those who vote for the extension of life past eighty, or a hundred years, will be called ‘selfish’ for wanting to exist longer than those living in the past. The strong answer to this is that survival anxiety in today’s world has been caused by short lifespans.

Centuries of mortal survival anxiety have resulted in violent wars with one group fighting another to achieve total survival power. And now, global warming is caused by short-lived generations not understanding the dangerous earth-destroying technology they’ve been selling and using.When longevity is achieved, in a global democratic society, there will be no more mortal blundering to achieve a non-working solution to the long-range issue of the Earth.

Superlongevity gives us the scientific power to create a safe world that we can live on for centuries to come. We will overcome mortal survival anxiety when humanity establishes the new range of scientific survival power as a civil right by law.
