What we need today is this new religion, one that raises a new set of high ideals for humanity that can guide, develop, and inspire people. Proclaiming the need for a new religion feels like it goes against our understanding of social progress. Social planning is more associated with the scientific method than emotions of compassion and justice. But that is the problem. People also need higher ideals of truth and morality, not just to guide actions for the benefit of all humanity but to inspire people to live lives full of meaning and hope.
