Aging is the largest cause of suffering and death, therefore, governments should be directly funding organizations like Google Calico, SENS Foundation and the Buck Institute for Research on Aging. THIS is where our tax dollars should be going (in LARGE AMOUNTS). The main function of government is to protect people from harm, and without a doubt aging is harmful. Zoltan Istvan is the only presidential candidate who understands this. Zoltan founded the Transhumanist Party.
Zoltan is positively correct when he says “medicine and technology should be at the forefront of the government.”
He goes on to say:
“I would like to make it so that everyone can live longer and give everyone the choice to potentially not die. I’m pretty convinced that if we put a trillion dollars towards conquering death, we would probably achieve it. Most experts actually feel that way too. The amount of money that’s actually going into life-extension science right now is so small… ”
Until aging research has funding in the zone of TRILLIONS of dollars, governments are being highly irresponsible. We need to raise our voice! via Eternal Life Fan Club http://ift.tt/1xvDcfy
