Technological progressivism in the sense outlined here is distinct from the Transhumanist concept in that it is focused on current and near future technological empowerment and a rethinking of current governance in a modern context, with the explicit elicitation of Democractic Socialism where these ideals are focused on the general betterment of the people as a whole. Technological and scientific innovations of governance and direction by ideal should be practical and reasonably attainable. Again by ideal the goal of improving the systems is for the betterment of all people and by ideal balancing power and enforcing equality can only be effective if it is strongly enforced. In these ways this ideology is distinct from many current Transhumanist schools of thought in that the allowance of vast disparities of power in all it’s forms should be prevented unless it serves for the betterment of all people.

Reformation of the current governance structures and continual reformation of government are core ideals of Techno Progressive Democratic Socialism. In that governments are a reflection of the tools available at the creation of their foundations and as these tools change so should the foundation of government. That the reformation must in large part be a democratically achieved set of changes to the current government, by necessity architected by small teams.
