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 or supporting the Rational Group, spreading the word, canvassing, signing petitions, making donations, helping with web site and social media, the merging of charities and NGOs, and language translation you will be doing important work to make the world a better place. Fortunately, public support for Rationalism can be widespread and informed, partly because the causes and solutions to world problems are actually quite straight forward, and also because the internet allows ideas to be disseminated freely in a way that was impossible 500, 100 or even 10 years ago. We estimate that with some interest from TV and newspapers, celebrities and a budget as little as $600,000 we can provide annual benefits to mankind in the 100’s of trillions.
In the case of democracies, politicians are receptive to public opinion; 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
