Man Meets Machine
While machines have become more and more a part of our lives, the Alternative Party does not believe progress will stop merely with slightly better keyboards. The first real cybernetic developments have now become reality. Electronic eyes that let a blind person see. Robotic limbs that allow a cripple to walk. There are games that you control with your thought. However, these are only the beginning and, whether we like it or not, the time for cybernetic enhancements is quickly approaching. A time when people will not think twice about upgrading their hearing, their strength, their life span or even their thoughts. When humans develop to the point where they not only construct the world around them, but construct themselves.
The Alternative Party 2009 is celebrating this meshing of electronics, genetics and humans, and to open the future of our species and our identity to debate. After all, we want to become a cybernoid.
