NEOHUMANISM AS ANTIDOTE TO CONSPIRACY, DOGMA, AND EXPLOITATION
Join Jason Schreiner for an informative and inspiring class.
Our world is currently awash in misinformation and conspiracy theories that act as poisons to the human intellect, numbing critical thinking and obscuring people’s perceptions and understanding of reality. Powerful interests, including leading political leaders, are using such snake oil to manipulate people’s sentiments in support of policies and practices that benefit a few at the expense of the many, with disastrous consequences for society and life. Amid the resulting fog of confusion, distrust, division, and social conflict are the dogmas and structures of exploitation that perpetuate power, domination, and inequality.
In this class we will use the antidote of Neohumanism to purge delusion, unmask powerful interests, reveal exploitation, crush dogma, and illuminate pathways to a cohesive, constructive future.

DATE: Saturday, May 15th
TIME: 10:00 – 11:30 am Pacific Time
