Enlightenment Defended
Politics • Spirituality/Belief • Culture
Enlightenment Defended will repel the dark nihilism of “post-truth”, woke culture, identity politics, and political correctness. It will catalyse the bright flame of the enlightenment —liberty, reason and progress.

Enlightenment Defended will create an open realm of vigorous philosophical debate through animation, documentaries, poetry, humour, music and myth. People are many-sided in both apprehension and enjoyment.

Introduction to Enlightenment Defended. Part 2.

Enlightenment Defended will embrace exciting new thinking on how to promote the enlightenment values of liberty, personal autonomy, and cultural and individual flourishing. Anarchism, William Bartley’s and David Miller’s versions of comprehensive critical rationalism, David Deutsch’s theory, elaborated in his book, The Beginning of Infinity, and my related theory presented in the article The Metaphysics of Scarcity (1996), my theory of rationality and the evolution of ideas (The Myth of the Closed Mind), Balaji Srinivasan’s networked digital collectives, the liberating role of crypto-currency, Sarah Fitz-Claridge’s movement Taking Children Seriously, Stephen Davies's thoughts on the realignment of politics, and Jan Lester’s theory of liberty as the absence of pro-actively imposed costs, will all figure prominently in our discussions.
