“As humanists we urge today, as in the past, that humans not look beyond themselves for salvation. We alone are srepsonsible for our own destiny, and the best we can do is muster our intelligence, courage, and compassion to realize our highest aspirations.”
- Paul Kurtz, “The Humanist Manifesto, 2000”
The problem at the core of this statement is the matter of whose aspiration we ought to aim for. Throughout the past 100 years, we witnessed competing aspirations that tried in vain to fix our world and bring about utopia.
The truth is that our world simply cannot be fixed.
It must be redeemed.
