Social ΙnEquality and Classless Humanism


By Kostas Lampos


The political philosophy, social and economic theories of modern times, from their founders until today and with few exceptions, have largely ignored the natural laws that explain the existence of the Universe and the appearance and evolution of life, but also the laws of the development of societies. On the contrary, as idealism, obscurantism, liberalism, neoliberalism, classicism and neoclassicism, they focused on defending the individual ownership of the means of production, the supposed quintessence of individual freedom. This delusion even forced them to ignore and underestimate the existence of society, which is the timeless subject of history and the only creator of human civilization. This choice led them to sterilely defend social inequality, which brought them into a strategically important conflict with the forces of Labor, Science and Culture. This conflict has given rise to the need for a new modern worldview corresponding to the reality of the 21st century and for the search for a new alternative strategy that will capture the possibilities and needs of the 21st century and pave the way for the exit of humanity. from capitalist barbarism. The result of this process brings back to the surface the timeless strategy of working humanity for a world of social equality, which in the 21st century and thanks to modern sciences and technologies that are of course under the control of working society / humanity, gradually acquires content, form and the dimensions of an Ataxic Ecumenical Humanism. An honest and documented book that dares to curtail political thought and action.
