Elon Musk is a self-proclaimed advocate of transhumanism. However, there is no transhumanism in Agenda 2030.
Many conspiracy theories related to Agenda 2030 of the World Economic Forum (WEF) have been doing rounds on social media since the WEF's annual conference at Davos, Switzerland, kicked off this week (May 22, 2022). One such claim was linked to Elon Musk, the CEO of SpaceX and Tesla Automotive. A Facebook user posted a video of an old interview with Musk where he can be heard talking about transhumanism. However, his statements were wrongly linked to the Great Reset initiative of the World Economic Forum's Agenda 2030. Transhumanism is the belief that humanity can be enhanced with human physiology and intelligence using science and technology. Sometimes this amounts to humans "merging" with machines, or other sci-fi predictions. Elon Musk is a self-proclaimed advocate of transhumanism. During the World Government Summit in Dubai in 2017, Musk argued that humans could become redundant in the face of AI. Further, he went on to say, "AI threatens to become widespread, humans would be useless, so there's a need to merge with machines to become a sort of cyborg," according to a CNBC report. In 2020 Musk also launched Neuralink, a new brain-computer interface that attempts to implant a brain chip that enables the computer and other devices to communicate with the brain. Neuralink is believed to help cure neurological disorders. However, there is no connection between Elon Musk's interest in transhumanism to the Agenda 2030 laid forward by WEF's Great Reset initiative. The Great Reset initiative of the World Economic Forum's Agenda 2030 aims to build the foundations of the economic and social system for a fairer and more resilient future and a requirement for sustainable development by eradicating poverty. The WEF is a global foundation that seeks to influence governments and business leaders. Likewise, the "Agenda 2030" plan from the WEF is also not anywhere associated with transhumanism. The WEF's "Great Reset initiative" has been the subject of many conspiracy theories. Logically recently debunked claims around WEF's agenda 2030 to propagate the Great Reset Conspiracy theory. The is no link between Elon Musk's stance on transhumanism with Agenda 2030, and the WEF has not mentioned transhumanism anywhere in its Agenda 2030. Conspiracy theorists are making baseless connections to justify the existence of a fictitious conspiracy "Agenda 2030."
