Dear Friends, help it reach and touch humanists everywhere PRACTICAL HUMANIST MANIFESTOAre you a Humanist? - Many people all over the world would say "I am a Humanist" if you asked them. By and large, whether they are religious or not, they believe that all human life is equally sacred. The well-being of each and every living individual on this earth is their supreme value, not any groups, ideas, or institutions. By "wellbeing" they mean freedom and personal growth toward self-actualization more than material wealth.   They value individual freedom and individual rights and strongly insist on democracy as the basis of any government.They are remarkably free of hatred and prejudices against other people and have retained their sense of caring for the oppression, exploitation and suffering of their fellow human beings.

Friends and Colleagues,This is an offer of a learn, and then integrate into your life and career, in Peacemaking, social activism or teaching,  a new psychological Theory of Dehumanization. I firmly believe it could become a potential breakthrough in the field of Peacemaking and Peace Education. .I am offering to send the written text free to whoever asks for it.  I am also seeking to find among you a partner for publishing, in your language, a manuscript tentatively called in English THE VIRUS OF DEHUMANIZATION: A PSYCHOLOGICAL THEORY OF FANATICISM. This is not a regular business proposition, because I do not have the means to finance the publication or its translation from my sub-standard English to a publishable language. Rather, I appeal to persons who would be motivated to become involved in the project because they'd become convinced in its value and its potential impact on humanity. In other words: I am extending my hand to kin-spirits. I want to share my life's work with…See More
