The Humanist Manifesto III [4:48]


The first Humanist Manifesto, written in 1933, has started a beautiful tradition within Humanism of periodic reflection and, most importantly, revision of a new generation of what Humanism is and what its values are.  As the Preamble states, each new Manifesto is a democratic reflection of a variety of different minds, which no one person 100% agrees with although all do agree that the points it asserts will and should be updated by future generations.
