IEET > Contributors > Khannea Suntzu

Khannea Suntzu

Khannea Suntzu describes herself as cosmist, cosmicist, upwinger, socialist-libertarian, hedonist and abolitionist. Khannea is transgendered, and currently lives in the Netherlands.

Khannea is first and foremost a narrative and scenario-builder, using these predispositions to blog and agitate. Her political views entail an arguably far-leftist stance on society and progress. She is persistently critical of pervasive corporatism, world-wide encroaching encroaching oligarchy and the resulting endemic culture of income disparity. While nominally a techno-progressive and transhumanist, khani is quite critical of the ‘ruthlessly’ libertarian undercurrent in these movements, which she labels “neo-Darwinists” (or a range of less flattering terms). She has traveled to several venues world wide, emphasizing the crisis of energy-resource depletion, technological unemployment, the collapse of democracy, while at the same time actively advocating life extension, space industrialization, basic income, societal resilience and the of radically new modes of communication and social interaction.

Khannea brings her backgrounds in interaction design, art, narrative speculation, scenario building and philosophy to paint often confrontational and sarcastic dystopian extrapolations of current trends. She has been quite active ‘experimenting’ with Second Life in the past, and insists on the relevance of open virtual worlds as a means of communication, creativity and cultural advancement.
