project WORLDVIEW        META THEME         copyright 2022        Home


This title names the social justice path valuing equality my worldview is built on. I believe all humans should have the same rights, opportunity / privileges. Where their goals are consistent with this belief, I support collective struggles against centralized power that seek to reform church, state, political, and economic institutions. I generally don’t like discrimination/ exclusion. I support   1) social movements that are hierarchy attenuating (not enhancing) – feminism and affirmative action are examples, and 2) empowering the powerless.
