View Resignation

“Resignation” refers to resignation to the idea that technological risks are uncontrollable. Furthermore, a stance of resignation holds that government intervention always has negative unforeseen consequences.

Resignation is a viewpoint held by libertarian transhumanists, who believe that risks are better managed without government.

Market fundamentalists as well as neoliberals and neoconservatives sometimes advocate that the Regulation and development of Emerging technologies should be resigned to market forces.

Resignation stands in contrast to the technological Relinquishment favored by bioconservatives. As former IEET Fellow Dale Carrico notes, when considering the unenforceable nature of relinquishment, the results of both policies are seemingly abandoning"technological development to the least scrupulous, least deliberative, least accountable forces on offer.” technoprogressives favor the moderate path of regulation through democratic management and oversight of risks.
