70-80% regulated capitalism? 20-30% socialism? What does that mean exactly? What is included in these figures? How do you even attempt to quantify policy? And 25% of what income? Earned income, sole proprietorship income? Corporate income? Capital gains income?<quoted text>
"Guantanamo bay is the humanistic thing to do. Just imprison people without trial and piss on them all day all in the name of "national security"
You don't have a fucking idea what you're talking about, and you are offensive. Shall I start spreading slanderous trash about Muslims to keep up with you. jihad boy?
Humanists are horrified by Gitmo. Preserving the right not to be tortured is not expensive. It actually costs more to deny it.
Plus, I think you're repeating yourself, and I believe that I've said all I have to say. I support political and social secular humanism, and a government that is about 70-80% regulated capitalism, and about 20-30% socialism. That means about an average of 25% of income going into the kitty as taxes, most of that going to infrastructure, human development, and the social safety net.
I see no value for religion anywhere, but especially for organized, politicized religion in the United States. The faith experience for me in my world is one of an cruel and infantilizing ideology. I applaud its atrophy and journey into irrelevance.
Does that about summarize it?
Secular humanism is just as open to interpretation as any religion. While you and perhaps other humanists you know may look at Guantanamo as horrific, others may very easily argue that Guantanamo is torturing a few humans to keep millions of humans safe, and is hence a humanistic decision.
My point is, who will decide?
