Humanism and Civilization’s Moral Idols

The following is a condensed summary of my thoughts on humanism and nihilism. It pulls sections from essays, notes, etc. that regular readers may have already come across, and I apologize for the repetitiveness.

Notes on Humanism and Progressivism

I Humanism is the dominant ideology of world society. “Humanism” here means a morality that sets justice, equality, and peace as its ideals, and that considers the sphere of moral consideration to be the whole human species. “Dominant” here is a measure of power, not popularity. Most of the world population, by numbers, may not […]

A Critique of the Concept of “Leftism”

These pieces should provide the requisite knowledge for following this critique. Two Meanings of Leftism Theorists […]

Primitivism and the “Regressive Left”

The so-called “regressive left” is an example of this from humanism. The regressive left argues that Western civilization embodies power structures that prevent it from living up to humanist or post-humanist […]

Misanthropy

Summary—Progressivists sometimes charge that conservationists are misanthropes. In reality, progressivists are the real misanthropes, since they disdain human nature and seek to “improve” it into non-existence. As a result, they only consider “human” (and “humane”) those things that benefit civilized conditions, and use this as the framework by which to judge whether or not an […]
