Humanism in politics

Humanism in Government

Question:
Does humanism type of ideology exist in the past in governmental doctrines&policies of its practice? This question from K. I.

Just ends cannot be created by unjust means

Answer:
Great question!  The answer is yes.  It is often invoked, sometimes inappropriately to promote or justify government decisions. And like all philosophies can be misused.

grief extinction process

5 Stages of Grief from an Operant Conditioning Perspective

The 5 stages of grief are a perfect example of an extinction burst. This knowledge can help you not only experience grief more quickly, but get to acceptance more easily.

Grief experience

The 5 stages of grief are listed as:

  • Denial
  • Anger
  • Bargaining
  • Depression
  • And acceptance.

These stages don’t necessarily occur in order and different people spend a different amount of time in each stage.  The final stage being acceptance.  For more on the stages of grief and how people experience them visit this psych central article: http://psychcentral.com/lib/the-5-stages-of-loss-and-grief/000617

Silence is betrayal

Silence is Betrayal

Why all wars are wars on the poor – and while the military is a jobs program – that money would be better spent elsewhere.

Don't glorify violence

I understand the need for a military and a police force. I really do. Having the ability to put down threats is necessary – but excessive military does more harm than good  because it skews our priorities and our understanding of problems and how we solve them.  When people think in a military way – all problems end up having a military solution, even if that makes things worse.

It is impossible to separate the politics of war out from the politics of poverty. For every dime we spent waging war, that is a dime we do not spend feeding the homeless.

Sugar Babies – sex, prostitution and relationships

Sugar Babies – sex, prostitution and relationships

What constitutes prostitution isn’t always clear cut.

My Heart and My Body are connected

The Young Turks had a segment on Sugar Daddies the other day. There are also sugar mammas – but this show focused on women who let men pay them to date them.  They viewed this as prostitution.

Atheism isn't enough

Why Atheism isn’t Enough

Humanism rejects all forms of supernaturalism.  Here’s Why

.The price of rejecting reality is high

With all due respect to Stephen Law, who in a recent article argued that naturalism should not be a pre-requisite for Humanism and that atheism was sufficient. http://stephenlaw.blogspot.com/2014/09/secular-humanism-dont-define-it-as.html  I disagree. Law made this argument apparently because there are lots of people who don’t reject supernaturalism but who are atheists and these people should feel welcome under the Humanist tent.  I disagree.

And it’s not because I’m a strident atheist.  It’s just that rejection of theism isn’t enough.  There is a reason why most Humanists reject all forms of supernaturalism.
