Reason is inherently universal.  The greatest obstacle to the rational ordering of the world is simply that individual human beings do not realize their minds are part of this universal mind.

Mind progresses towards freedom by chipping away at this obstacle.

Evey human being can recognize the truth of her own spiritual being. The individual conscience in the ultimate arbiter.

For if every human being is freely able to use her powers of reasoning to judge truth and goodness, the world can only receive universal assent when it conforms with rational standards.

Therefore all social institutions must be made to conform to general principles of reason. Only then will people freely choose to accept these institutions.

The history of the world is nothing but the development of the idea of freedom.

II Women are an oppressed class. Our oppression is total, affecting every facet of our lives. We are exploited as sex objects, breeders, domestic servants, and cheap labor. We are considered inferior beings, whose only purpose is to enhance men’s lives. Our humanity is denied. Our prescribed behavior is enforced by the threat of physical violence.

Because we have lived so intimately with our oppressors, in isolation from each other, we have been kept from seeing our personal suffering as a political condition. This creates the illusion that a woman’s relationship with her man is a matter of interplay between two unique personalities, and can be worked out individually.

In reality, every such relationship is a class relationship, and the conflicts between individual men and women are political conflicts that can only be solved collectively. (via Redstockings Manifesto)

Redstockings Manifesto

We regard our personal experience, and our feelings about that experience, as the basis for an analysis of our common situation.  We cannot rely on existing ideologies as they are all products of male supremacist culture.  We question every generalization and accept none that are not confirmed by our experience. 

Our chief task at present is to develop female class consciousness through sharing experience and publicly exposing the sexist foundation of all our institutions.  Consciousness-raising is not “therapy,” which implies the existence of individual solutions and falsely assumes that the male-female relationship is purely personal, but the only method by which we can ensure that our program for liberation is based on the concrete realities of our lives. 

The first requirement for raising class consciousness is honesty, in private and in public, with ourselves and other women.

Money is not speech.  Everyone’s capacity for speech is equal so in a democracy, everyone has an equal voice.  Introducing money as speech throws democracy out of balance.  The whole system is corrupted by those who already have the most power and influence.  Government has a tendency to protect entrenched interests.  Throwing money at the problem makes a farce of representative democracy.
