I was going to graph the results…

…of that question I asked a few days ago, about how all of my followers classify their beliefs, but then I realized: that totally misses the purpose of humanism.

Because really, at its core, its ultimate goal is to get people to stop erecting manmade divisions between one another, to look one another in the eye, and recognize the common humanity shared.

That said, I was pleasantly surprised by the number of belief systems represented; if we cannot eliminate divisions, we can at least try to appeal to as many distinct groups as possible, right?

"They who say that we should love our fellow-citizens but not foreigners, destroy the universal brotherhood of mankind, with which benevolence and justice would perish forever."
