Spiritual Advances of the West

  • Democracy: Every person may vote for a representative who votes in the body which makes laws. Vote for the ideas and persons you believe in. Run for office. Petition the government for new laws. Protest objectionable laws or government actions.
  • God: Monotheism and faith. If you have the capacity to love life, you may unite your life with the one true God. One God serves all. One God created all. You may have enemies, but whether a person is a friend or enemy, they are all made by the same God.
  • God: Practice any religion you choose. Practice none.
  • God: The state and church are separated. Live free from a religion imposed by the state. Individuals choose a religion. A state has no religion and favors no religion.
  • Government is dedicated to protecting individuals from lawbreakers — whether individual, mob, or state. Government is dedicated to protecting individuals, not enriching and glorifying the powerful. The individual, by his vote, governs the state.
  • Guns: Citizens are free to own firearms to protect themselves from criminals and mobs.
  • Invention: The individual is encouraged to try out their own ideas. They can patent them. They can copyright them. Almost every great work of art or science is the work of one person.
  • Reason, logic, the scientific method: Knowledge begins with empirical evidence. Seek truth free from prejudice. Run an experiment to verify your hypothesis. Invent anything the physical laws of the universe support.
  • Rule of law. The law applies equally to rich and poor. Laws apply equally to all persons. The law cannot separate citizens into a caste or a class. We are all created equal. No law can stand which says otherwise.
  • Schooling: Children are required to pursue and receive without charge an education through the age of 18.
  • Slavery: Abolished. Outlawed. The West ended a barbaric practice which originated with the beginning of the human race.  
  • Speech: Free speech. The best ideas cannot be outlawed. Argument among adversaries strengthens the ideas of both sides. An individual with a unique perspective cannot be silenced by the state.
  • Women are free to vote, work, go to school, live independently, marry or stay single, own property, save money, start a business, pursue political office. A woman’s rights are equal to a man’s rights.
