True to Form: Martine Rothblatt and the Distortion of Reality
I always feel slightly uncomfortable talking about the transgender issue, because whilst I am completely opposed to the poisonous agenda of those who are using the subject to further their own warped ambitions, I nonetheless feel a sense of compassion for those individuals who are genuinely suffering the effects of gender dysphoria. However, after reading through the potted curriculum vitae of a certain Martine Rothblatt (pictured), who is described as “an American lawyer, author, entrepreneur, and transgender rights advocate,” I feel that I must help to bring the activities and beliefs of this toxic individual to light. As you will see, his/her agenda also raises something of a philosophical conundrum.
To begin with, Rothblatt worked in satellite communications but went on to study astonomy at the University of Maryland. Before long, he/she was quickly employed by NASA to work in the area of radio frequencies for deep space research. From there, Rothblatt moved into satellite navigation technology – known as the Geostar System – prior to a stint with the Space Studies Institute and the issuing of a PanAmSat MBA thesis that would help his/her patrons to present a serious challenge to the global telecommunications satellite monopoly, Intelsat. After serving as the CEO of Geostar Corporation, Rothblatt left to create both WorldSpace and Sirius Satellite Radio. This was followed by a period as full-time chairman and CEO of American medical biotechnology company, United Therapeutics.
Several communications satellite companies followed, including the first private international spacecom project, the first global satellite radio network and the first non-geostationary satellite-to-car broadcasting system. Rothblatt also pioneered airship internet services with the Sky Station project and worked alongside the US Federal Communications Commission. Described as an “attorney-entrepreneur,” Rothblatt has been involved in a dizzying array of projects. These include the International Bar Association’s biopolitical scheme to develop a draft Universal Declaration on the Human Genome and Human Rights, something endorsed by the UN General Assembly as early as 1998.
He/she then moved into the medical and pharmaceutical industry, something combined with personal “sex reassignment surgery”. Whilst already having collaborated with some of the main globalist organisations, it was at this point that Rothblatt became far more ideological and was yet the highest-paid “female” CEO in America and had accrued a cool $38 million. Involvement in animal-human organ replacement followed, with Rothblatt’s Lung Biotechnology corporation transplanting the first genetically-modified porcine heart. The operation was unsuccessful and the patient died.
Now a vocal advocate for “transgender rights,” in 2004 Rothblatt launched a transhumanist school known as the Terasem Movement. This has focused on “promoting joy, diversity, and the prospect of technological immortality via mind uploading and geoethical nanotechnology”. Through his/her personal blog, Mindfiles, Mindware and Mindclones, Rothblatt discusses “the coming age of our own cyberconsciousness and techno-immortality” and this was supplemented by the creation of a website through which people were invited to “backup their minds”. I am pretty sure that most of us in our right minds – i.e. those which have not yet been uploaded to Rothblatt’s website – would find these revelations extremely creepy. Particularly, it must be said, when you think of the power and influence that lies behind it.
What has been firmly established during the course of Rothblatt’s star-studded career, is the damning link between technocratic ambition, the medical industry and fanatical transgender activism. Interestingly, in a Substack article by Jennifer Bilek which sets out to expose these activities (‘Martine Rothblatt: A Founding Father of the “Transgender” Empire’), Bilek says of Rothblatt’s attitude towards human interaction that “a lasting interpersonal relationship is only possible if the two partners share a strong appreciation for each other’s bemes – their characters, natures, and ideational units of existence.”
Approaching things from a more philosophical perspective, the use of the term “ideational” suddenly gave me the impression that transhumanism may well be a systematic attempt to reverse Plato’s theory of forms (a strategy often attributed to the French thinker, Gilles Deleuze). Indeed, whilst Plato believed that the earthly realm is inferior to that of the world beyond the veil, so to speak, due to its tendency to either change or operate within established parameters of time and space, the supernatural forms are said to be the non-physical essences of things which, by comparison, are a pale imitation of something far more supreme. The physical world is therefore inferior to the forms that lie on the other side of the divide. Be it colour, shape, sound, smell or anything else, that which we perceive around us hides a far deeper reality and this concept became one of the chief mainstays of Western philosophy.
Returning to the case of Martine Rothblatt, efforts to create a world in which black is presented as white (and vice versa), male is presented as female (and vice versa), and earth is presented as a heaven both in and of itself are clearly an inversion of the Platonic idea. Similar to the story of the Tower of Babel, albeit in Rothblatt’s more peculiar example involving the body as a “modified” temple, this is something of a recurring motif and Mary Shelley was among the first to highlight the dangers of scientific tinkering long ago. The fact that a movement so falsely ‘transcendent’ is being posited in the material domain is no accident, of course, simply because the likes of Rothblatt are obsessed with money, power and (in a more subtle regard) world domination.
