>From the article Joseph Bloch referenced:

"...Joseph Fletcher was a man with a manifestly brutal mind, desperately
anxious to believe himself superior to the common run of men, one who
apparently received some sort of crypto-erotic thrill from his cruel
fantasies of creating a slave race, and of literally branding others as his
genetic inferiors..."

Who is this Joseph Fletcher character that is being savaged?  I have been
reading transhumanist stuff for over a decade and never heard of him.  The
article seems to think he has something to do with transhumanism.
