Transhumanist separatism is a fringe idea within the transhumanist political spectrum, advocating that transhumanists should form separate societies from mainstream society.

It can be considered a manifestation of the neo-reactionary movement, rejecting democracy and inclusivity.

When in 2010, Rachael Haywire and Jason Schoenecker wrote about "A Transhuman Separatist Manifesto",[1] it provoked reactions of both interest in the future of relationships between enhanced and non-enhanced individuals,[2] as well being described as 'a threat to H+' from various positions within Humanity+ who rejected such an idea.[3]

In later years, the concept of a separatist 'start up society' has been compared to more civilised ISIS, with scepticism directed towards ideas of libertarian sovereign compounds.[4]

In fiction

In the X-Men franchise, conflicts between the Magneto's separatist Brotherhood of Mutants and Professor X's more inclusive approach set the backdrop of a number of conflicts in their fictional universe.

Zoltan Istvan's The Transhumanist Wager features an independent transhumanist state.
