What’s it all about

It is apparent national leaders and their political parties are not up to addressing 21st century crises nor even historical chronic social and economic problems.
Solutions do exist, you can learn them from us, and then make it clear
to politicians that you will only vote for them when they adopt our political ideology

Rationalism and Rational Group

Two things are required to address the political, economic, environmental and social chaos we see around the world –

The first is a sound and comprehensive ideology: Rationalism provides the moral principles, social structures and economic methods necessary for mankind to flourish now and because it allows the recommendations of environmental science to be embraced, in the future too.  Like the founder, most people will be unaware of any previous use of the word ‘Rationalism’ but for clarity the ideology is not drawn from other thinking.  We do not adjust policy to gain popular support, we are about education and openness, explaining and winning people around.  Unlike a political party we welcome new thinking.  You do not need to canvass for the Rational Group or donate or be a member to influence our policies and solutions.

The second is widespread understanding and global popular support for Rationalism.  By joining and supporting the Rational Group, learning and spreading the word, helping in other ways: canvassing, signing petitions, donating, helping with specifics like web site and social media, language translation, you can be doing important work.

In the case of democracies, politicians are receptive to public opinion, so the more members we have that will only vote when they adopt appropriate plans the better.

In the case of authoritarian regimes, leaders still need viable ideology or could peacefully be displaced because of the ideology’s inclusive nature, so wherever you live it is well worth investing the small effort necessary to see change

Rationalism – a comprehensive ideology

Rationalism describes the social values, economic methods and business structures necessary for a prosperous, sustainable, and peaceful world. It describes the systems required to optimally manage education, training, employment, housing, healthcare, taxation, world trade, capital and global resources. The ideology offers a common base that all responsible political parties can adopt – prerequisite for adequate competent, cooperative and coherent progress to combat climate crisis and chronic historical social and economic issues.for sustained progress around the world.

Understanding the problems – poor economic management and inequity

We need to produce the right goods and services in an ecologically sustainable way, and distribute them optimally.  Rationalism provides answers to how the 3 objectives of economic efficiency, sustainability, and equity can be achieved.  To set mankind on the path to achieving these objectives, which one needs to come first and why?  Can you think of two things essential to achieving the objective?

Understanding the problems – economic theory

It’s good to identify and understand the problems before working on the solutions!

Companies rise and fall, and there is no need for there to be an overall rise.  Economic contraction can be an indicator of greater efficiency. The belief that economic growth is essential, the reliance on it as a cure-all, and the important things that are consequently ignored, are the most significant and damaging failures of contemporary economic theory. Wealth and economic output levels can and often go in opposite directions. See if you can come up with five reasons preoccupation with economic growth is bad.    inbox@ourvote.org
