"About one conclusion we can feel especially confident: it [a breakthrough] will not happen within the framework of contemporary corporate capitalism — or any form of capitalism. To begin setting up domes on Mars, let alone to develop the means to figure out if there are alien civilizations to contact, we’re going to have to figure out a different economic system."

Socialist Transhumanism, or Soch+, is an economically left-wing, socialist, transhumanist, and, for the vast majority of the time, culturally progressive ideology. Soch+ believes that the goals of achieving a socialist society and transcending humanity into the technological singularity are complementary goals.


Soch+ has its roots in the Russian cosmist movement of the early 20th century. This movement emphasized humanity's relationship with the cosmos. Cosmism was one of the main influences for the concept of Proletkult, which saw "the proletarian" as a universal figure to conquer the stars and planets. This idea, and others like it eventually found their way into transhumanist circles.

Later in the 20th century, the Soviet Union made the development and advancement of science a national priority.


Soch+ is usually represented along the lines of being the combination of a stereotypical socialist with a stereotypical transhumanist. Soch+ will usually be seen touting the benefits of socialism through its effects on automating away useless jobs. After hearing criticism that he doesn’t promote innovation as much as capitalism, he will retreat to his viewing of sovietwave, wondering what could have been. Soch+ will also be seen criticizing capitalist transhumanism for using automation to the detriment of workers.
