A POLITICAL PHILOSOPHY FOR THE 21ST CENTURY
Political Humanism is a new political theory with a humanist philosophical perspective that defines modern society as a series of mutually beneficial agreements between people. It identifies what is mutually beneficial in terms of personal and societal well-being across a series of measurable parameters called Human Welfare Indices and suggests that we are shaped, as social creatures with consciousness and empathy, to maximise well-being as a collective moral endeavour. Having defined the values of what constitutes pro-social behaviours and the very purpose of governance it suggests how we may engage in a rapid intellectual evolution and collectively rally for the reform and redesign of our civic institutions and the resulting output in social policy, and around making the well needed changes to our lives and lifestyles. Essentially, it is about how we make the world a better place.
