Americans Need To Tell Computers What To Do, Not The Reverse Part 1

American Mind editor James Poulos talks to the “War Room” about his new book, “Human Forever.” If you want to know about the war against transhumanism, this is a good place to start.

“What we need is ordinary Americans, regular people, to reassert some controls, basic human agency, over our databases. Our most powerful machines in the digital age are the databases. What happens on the database today is often even more important than what happens off the database. That means we have to take control of those things.”

We Must Maintain Sacred Culture Part 2

Human, Forever: The Digital Politics of Spiritual War

In a scorching, searching guide to saving our souls from the digital apocalypse, James Poulos shows how the swarm of programs and devices unleashed by our leaders has transformed our lives and defied our dreams, throwing the future into terrifying doubt. Rising above the din of the discourse, he reveals how the first generation of the digital age can retake control of our technology by restoring our full humanity—and how their parents must save them from the new cyborg system bent on ensuring they never come of age.

About The Book

Technology once made a god of America. Now America is technology’s slave. What happened? And how do we reclaim our humanity?

In a scorching, searching guide to saving our souls from the digital apocalypse, James Poulos shows how the swarm of programs and devices unleashed by our leaders has transformed our lives and defied our dreams, throwing the future into terrifying doubt. Scrambling for control at any price, today’s ruling factions tempt us to grant them absolute power with utopian promises of superhuman autonomy and dystopian threats of subhuman servitude. But godlike fantasies and buglike nightmares won’t snatch back our destiny from the jaws of the digital swarm. By turns autobiographical, philosophical, and polemical, Poulos holds a mirror of clarity up to the maelstrom of our collapsing world. Rising above the din of the discourse, he reveals how the first generation of the digital age can retake control of our technology by restoring our full humanity—and how their parents must save them from the new cyborg system bent on ensuring they never come of age.
