Merely uttering a reasonable understanding and vision (always contestable) of the American founding has become contentious, within political parties and more broadly in the ‘culture.’
Sometimes, I have my doubts Secular Humanists have properly grasped….humans:
‘Regular readers of Quillette need no introduction to the ways in which authoritarian strains of social-justice leftism conflict with traditional liberal precepts such as free speech, rational inquiry and due process…
…This is the story of my own little corner: the Vancouver-based British Columbia Humanist Association (BCHA).’
There is plenty of good writing about ignorance, vanity, righteousness, sincere belief, grifting, and fanaticism, simply within our own traditions.
This used to be called the ‘Humanities.’
Meanwhile, if you’d like an alternate vision to the freedoms and responsibilities stemming from the American founding (and deeper still), I’d like to offer you Man and Nature harmoniusly living, and loving, together.
What are you waiting for?:
At Peace Pavilion West, we have a mural of our doctrinal Leader receiving Gaia’s blessing by way of animal welcoming committee. A Polar Bear cub, various golden retrievers, frolicking Neanderthals, the measles virus….it’s all there. We welcome you into our Community.
