Ground Rules of Civil Society
A Radical Centrist Manifesto
Copyright © 2003-5 Dr.Ernest.N.Prabhakar @ (pdf)
I believe beliefs matter:
   Truth is absolute
      Knowledge is relative
         Value is complex

I believe in Conscious Moral Choice µ:
    Conscious in Knowledge to estimate consequences
       Moral in Wisdom to optimize total value
          Choice in Freedom to find alternatives
             for creating or rewarding value

I believe value needs to be χ Created, ρ Recognized, & ν Normalized:
   χ The best human act
         is the conscious moral choice µ
            to use my resources
               to create value for others
   ρ The next best act
          is to reward others
            as they create value for me
   ν Relative value
         is best determined
            by honest collaborative inquiry
               into competing alternatives

I believe everyone wants to believe they are good:
   The Wise examine Character
      The Wicked shrink Community
         Fools deny Reality
            & All of them are me
