The Rational Manifesto:
A manifesto is a public declaration of the opinions, policies and goals of a group. The Rational Manifesto lays out the principles and practices of Democratic Rationalism. Rationalism is a belief in innate knowledge. The choice is to belief we know right from wrong or must learn this from experience. Rationalists believe innate knowledge gives rise to civil rights and ethics. Rationalists believe in Freedom being the right to respond to what we know instinctively is ethical and just. Democratic Rationalists believe reason gives rise to economics and the free market. Reason requires us to reject the state the creation of social costs as incompatible with our civil rights. The state is an ethical absurdity and inconsistent with the existence of civil rights.
Rationalists subscribe to the philosophy of Rationalism. Rationalists of necessity believe the world is rational and conceptual and knowable. Rationalists believe not only that humankind has innate knowledge but also that all of reality is inherently coherent and knowable. Rationality and ethics are coherent and conspire to necessitate an economy that does not require the state. Reason is reflected in mathematics and contains a quantitative correlate. The quantification of reason is based on the economic value of our choices as defined and established in free markets. Free markets are the economic expression of our civil rights.
Civilization is not possible without a free market. Free markets are mankinds fullest expression of liberty. Freedom is freedom from risk and free markets eliminate risk. Risk is a threat of loss and a threat of loss is always directed against humanities civil rights.
Dominionism is considered by some to mean mankind has authority over the world. This interpretation is in error. Humans are not restricted to Dominion over matter or the physical world our authority extends to reality itself. We create reality as we assign value to our experience. Reality is applied reason. Reality is conceptual and is composed of information. The world makes sense because or to the degree, the concepts we subscribe to make sense. The confusion that surrounds the idea of Dominionism may be due to the fact we do not have dominion over others nor over reason itself. Rationality must conform to the logic of information and to the internal coherency of the information. We cannot make contradictory ideas make sense. Contradictions cannot compose reality. This is where our reason becomes subject to reality. Where our concepts are inconsistent, our world is incoherent. Reality conforms to and is created by the laws of logic and communication. We cannot understand what we cannot communicate. A rational existence is one in which civil liberties are respected.
The world is not Natural it is rational and ethical; natural law does not exist as objective reality. Existence is information and information that is good is consistent and this gives us a consistent reality. This gives us a society favourable to humanities civil liberties. Reason must always prevail in that reason is governed by information. We can make our own choices but we cannot make choices inconsistent with reason and logic. Invalid choices are incoherent. Incoherent ideas produce a reality that is divisive. Rationality is defined by the logical rules created by God not nature. Only a society that promotes civil liberties is logically coherent. Markets that corrupt civil liberties are inherently insane.
Reality is conceptual but our concepts have to be rational. We cannot have concepts that contradict each other. Truth permits but only one option. There is only one way to think coherently. The choices we make allow new ones but eliminate others. There is only one way our values will come together without contradiction.
Rationality is expressed in economics and generates progress. Rationalists work to create consistent imagry. This is best done through democracy. Rationalism is founded on a commitment to economic rational exchanges. It is within the context of free and ethical markets that progress is generated. The freedom to chose must be confined to making the best or most rational choice. This is the choice that eliminates waste. This is a free market.
Rationalists believe political power resides or ought to reside in a free market. Rationalists believe there is a way to live and do business that is more equitable and just than what Global Free Trade Agreements offer.
Regulated markets contain liabilities as well as assets. Debt is not rational. Waste infringes upon our human rights.
Exchanges do not require and are inherently incompatible with the regulatory oversight of the state. Regulations always betray favouritism. Some persons will always end up paying costs created by others in a regulatory environment. Regulations always create costs and social costs are not compatible with democracy.
Free enterprise requires regulations and the state. Free enterprise is not congruent with a free market. Regulations generate conflicts over property rights. The free enterprise system is the economic equivalent of a survival of the fittest schema. The competitive market is an evolutionary doctrine in which only the fit survive. Free enterprise is amoral and imposes costs onto the free market.
The Golden Rule is a First Order Principle. To do unto others, as you would have them do unto you is inherently rational. Rationality demands we each pay our own costs. The Golden Rule rejects social costs and interventions by the state.
Right and wrong is defined by the coherence of our concepts. We cannot unilaterally impose our values on others. The Golden Rule precludes that. Rationalists believe the value of the planet provides an objective guide. Inteligence is defined by the degree at which we as a people do that which generates value and inversely reduces social costs. Intelligence refers to the degree to which we exercise responsibility not only over the planet but over our reality.
Right and wrong are defined by the impact actions have on a community and the planet in a more general sense. If our reality conflicts with the reality of others due to inconsistencies in our thought we are in the wrong and not rational. Democracy requires freedom of choice and the absence of authoritarianism. Rationality cannot be legislated. No one can define what is right for others or even what is right in every context. Our individual actions in context define right from wrong. Regulations cannot provide mankind with a conceptually congruent society. We need a more objective foundation on which to build an ethical and prosperous society. Our beliefs must be coherent.Right actions are aligned with the operations of the free market. Wrong actions lead to a decline in value and an increase in conflict. Wrong actions pit one part of the community against the other. The state is the source of all social costs. Rationalists seek coherence in our beliefs. A coherence that can only come from an economy based on rationality in an ethical economy. This is the democratic respect for civil liberties.
