I believe in reasoning. I believe we must begin with an irrefutable base then follow transparently reasoned steps to the conclusions.
I believe we each have a unique spirit, and it is the only thing we have in common.
I believe all nominated universal human rights are assigned to the person when born into the group or when they move into the group. All such universal human rights are actually civil rights, and are defined by the group, not by the person who only has the choice of accepting them or not.
I believe the only universal right, derived from our unique sprit, is the inalienable right to be uniquely ourselves, the right to be different.
I believe we only have one fundamental moral choice:
… we choose to acknowledge the unique spirit in each of us;
… or, we do not.
I believe once we have made our moral choice, all other choices are the ethical result of our fundamental moral choice.
My moral choice is I recognize the irrefutably unique spirit in each of us.
I believe that every human spirit has the inalienable right to seek its own spiritual fulfillment, but in doing so it must recognize the equal right of all other spirits in pursuit of their fulfillment. The only social process to accommodate such harmony is social justice as workable compromise. In absence of mutual agreed workable compromise, in our modern world, workable compromise supported by a fair and transparent justice system falling equally on all spirits.
I will actively seek to support build a society in which each spirit is able to pursue its own fulfillment. A society in which the constitutional rules enable each spirit able to decide for itself that which it has an inalienable right to decide. A society where all rules are measured by the extent that they direct responsibility to the self-discipline of the unique sprits which constitute the society.
The only society to enable such diversity is one where the constitution (the framework of rules governing the society) is fully separate from culture (the choices of people in how they wish to live within the society). All cultures are free to live as they choose, provided all social conduct falls with the agreed rules of the constitution.
For a diverse society to build social harmony no aspect of any culture must be evident in the constitution. The state, the process of guiding the constitution must be omni-cultural, that is multi-cultural embracing all cultures equally while preferring none and exhibiting the characteristics of none.
I am opposed to any ideology that seeks to impose on any spirit. The Bible seeks to impose its way on people, the Quran seeks to impose, thus I am opposed to social structures based on these religions as restrictive of human diversity and ultimately restrictive of human individual spiritual fulfillment.
I support ideas that enable diversity and oppose ideas that restrict diversity.
My faith: While emotions drive us, eventually we are a species of reason and reasonableness will eventually be our way.
My mantra: May passion ever move me but reason be my guide.
