The Ecumenicalist Manifesto:

A manifesto is a public declaration of the opinions, policies and goals of a group. The Ecumenicalist Manifesto lays out the principles and practices of the Ecumenical Movement and establishes new procedures for bringing the right together. Rational Ecumenicalists see ecumenicalism as a movement on the political and economic Right incorporating the religious right but also expanding to encompass the wider notion of conservative. Rational Ecumenical’s believe the left is inarticulate and incoherent.
Rational Ecumenical’s believe:

  • power flows up from the base.

  • higher levels have only those powers provided by the express permission of lower levels.

  • The authority of all levels of government is permitted by and contained in and by a written constitution and no act or action by any level of government or body in authority or office may exceed its authority or abridge the limitations placed on the expression of its power, influence and authority as provided by the Constitution.

This is consistent with Scripture and the philosophy of Rationalism.

Rationalism is a belief in the existence of innate knowledge. The existence of social costs is incompatible with our human rights. The state is an ethical absurdity and inconsistent with human rationality.

Ecumenicalism is consistent with philosophical Rationalism. Rationalists believe the world is rational and conceptual and knowable. Rationalists believe not only that humans have innate knowledge but also that all of reality is inherently coherent and knowable. Rationality and ethics are coherent and conspire to necessitate a separation of Church and state. There is no biblical or secular foundation by which church and state can be reconciled. Rationalism leads us to see the necessity of ecumenicalism.

Reason is reflected in mathematics and contains a quantitative correlate. The quantification of reason is based on the economic value of our choices. Free markets are the economic expression of an ecumenical world view. Despite what you have been told free markets are possible only when a coherent world view exists.

Free markets are mankind’s fullest expression of the ecumenical movement. Freedom is freedom from risk. Risk always being the threat of loss. Threats of loss are always directed against assets. Assets must have a market value.

Dominion is considered by some to mean mankind has authority over the world. This interpretation is in error. Humans are not restricted to Dominion over matter or the physical world our authority extends to reality itself. We create reality as we assign value to our experience. Reality is applied reason. Reality is conceptual and is composed of information. The world makes sense because or to the degree, our concepts make sense. The confusion that surrounds the idea of Dominion may be due to the fact we do not have dominion over others nor over reason itself. Rationality must conform to the logic of information and to the internal coherency of the information. We cannot make contradictory ideas make sense. This also leads us to the logical necessity of ecumenicalism. Contradictions cannot compose reality. This is where our reason becomes subject to reality. Where our concepts are inconsistent, our world is incoherent. Reality conforms to and is created by the laws of logic and communication. We cannot understand what we cannot communicate. A rational existence is one in which a communal world view predominates. Rationality depends on a coherent world view. Liberalism needless to say is incoherent.

The world is not Natural it is rational and ethical; natural law does not exist as a form of regulation governing the world. Existence is information and information that is good is rational. Commonality of understanding gives us a consistent reality. Rationality gives us a society favourable to ecumenicalism. Reason must always prevail in that reason is governed by information. We can make our own choices but we cannot make choices inconsistent with reason and logic. Invalid choices are incoherent. Incoherent ideas produce a reality that is divisive. Rationality is defined by the logical rules created by God not nature. Only a society that promotes freedom is logically coherent.  Markets that corrupt civil liberties by means of private ownership are as unethical as they are irrational.

Reality is conceptual but our concepts have to be rational. We cannot have concepts that contradict each other. Truth permits but only one option. There is only one way to think coherently. The choices we make allow new ones but eliminate others. There is only one way our values will come together without contradiction.

Rationality is expressed in economics and generates progress. Ecumenicalists work to create consistency in their imagery. This is best done in and through Christianity. The concept of God is absolutely required for a coherent world view.

Ecumenicalism is p predicated on a commitment to the nation state.  It is within the context of ones nation state that coherency is generated. The freedom to chose must be confined to making the best or most rational choice within the nation state.
Political power resides or ought to reside in the boarders of a nation state. We believe there is a way to live and do business that is more equitable and just than what Global Free Trade Agreements offer.

Debt is not rational. Waste infringes upon our human rights.

Liberalism is always incoherent and a threat to national security. Ecumenicalists believe power resides and flows from the people. The ecumenical movement cannot be based on or rely on tyranny. All power is retained by the people other than that transferred to governments by means of a constitution. All power but that of the person is assigned.
Liberal governments have unilaterally and unethically not to mention irrationally usurped the final authority that has always belonged to the human person.

Regulations always exhibit favouritism. Some persons always end up paying costs created by others. Regulations always create social costs. Government ought to create consensus and function on the basis of a constitution.

Free enterprise requires regulations. Free enterprise is an incoherent ownership model that promises freedom by necessitates the state. Free enterprise is not congruent with a free market or national security. The free enterprise system is the economic equivalent of a survival of the fittest schema. Liberalism adheres to an evolutionary doctrine in which only the fit survive. The means of survival is the acquiring of money, or profit.

Competition over profits does not ensure everyone benefits so how can the nation come together when the results are so uncertain?
Rationalists do not see a focus on profits as an act of people who care about each other. The true business person is one who produces social benefit.

The Golden Rule is a First Order Principle. To do unto others, as you would have them do unto you is inherently ecumenical and rational. The Golden Rule gives society a commonality of purpose. Rationality demands we each pay our own costs. The Golden Rule rejects social costs and interventions by the state.

Right and wrong is defined by the coherence of our concepts. We cannot unilaterally impose our values on others. Ecumenicalism precludes that. Ecumenicalists believe the value of the planet provides an objective guide to progress. Intelligence is defined by the degree at which we as a people do that which generates value and inversely reduces social costs. Intelligence refers to the degree to which we exercise responsibility not only over the planet but over our reality.

Right and wrong are defined by the impact actions have on a community and the planet in a more general sense. If our reality conflicts with the reality of others due to inconsistencies in our thought our choices are not rational. Responsibility requires freedom of choice and the absence of authoritarianism. Rationality cannot be legislated. No one can define what is right for others or even what is right in every context. Our individual actions in context define right from wrong.

Regulations cannot provide mankind with a conceptually congruent society. We need a more objective foundation on which to build an ethical and prosperous society.

Right actions are aligned with the operations of the free market. Wrong actions lead to a decline in value and an increase in conflict. Wrong actions pit one part of the community against the other. Liberalism is the source of all social costs. Ecumenicalists seek coherence in their beliefs. Coherence only comes from freedom and reason and this is possible only in within the nation. Coherent beliefs provide the greatest level of security for the nation state.

To shift the state from the incoherence of liberalism to conservatism requires power and resources be stripped from the public sector and transferred to the private sector. The transfer of powers from the people to the government necessitates the formal adoption of a Constitution outlining the powers transferred. Governments have only those powers specifically assigned to them by those whom they govern otherwise the authority wielded is illegitimate
