Man and Superman: A Case for Human Happiness

Posted on Thursday, May 18th 2017

Posted on Wednesday, May 10th 2017

In order to give focus to some major changes she sees on the horizon, Sramana Mitra has written several pieces that grew out of her original article, Man and Superman: Human History Bifurcates. The previous articles in this series: Two Distinct SpeciesWhat CAN Be Controlled?Rationalizing PopulationsHow Long Does Democracy Survive?The Environmental Time BombRole of Religion, and Will There Be Revolution?

As this series has developed, I’ve had the privilege of listening to various perspectives about the possibilities. I’ve also had very interesting exchanges about questions, alternatives, and ramifications.

Man and Superman: Will There Be Revolution?

Posted on Wednesday, May 3rd 2017

In order to give focus to some major changes she sees on the horizon, Sramana Mitra has written several pieces that grew out of her original article, Man and Superman: Human History Bifurcates. The previous articles in this series: Two Distinct SpeciesWhat CAN Be Controlled?Rationalizing PopulationsHow Long Does Democracy Survive?; The Environmental Time Bomb; Role of Religion.

I’ve had several conversations about this series at various dinner parties, and a few points that have come up are worth further discussion.

One of them is the rebuttal that if Superman stops supporting Man through extensive welfare, there will be revolution.

I agree. This is a very logical possibility.

So let’s do a thought experiment on what leads up to revolution and what happens in the event of revolution.

In recent times, Islam is facing a tremendous backlash because of the mindshare that ISIS and Al-Qaeda have managed to garner. Anti-Islam sentiments are appealing political fodder for populist candidates.

But the religion that actually holds humanity together is one that cuts across all major religions: Islam, Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, and most other smaller sects. In fact, that religion is one that even the Atheists and Agnostics subscribe to.

Humanism.
