Ideal and the Human

Humanism is an idea, it is an ideal; it should remain a goal; it has been a tradition understood and cherished by the Publishing Editor of this Review. What has not been abandoned in these pages is a commitment to this tradition of Humanism, uppercase ‘H’ imperative. We know here at The Falling Leaf Review that the traditions of Humanism are not contrary to the best motives, initiatives, or goals of diversity or multiculturalism, except where either of the latter two are marketing ploys used by power to shift the focus away from power. Universality that does not recognize and accept the legitamacy of diversity is less than to can or should be; diversity that does not understand or include universality or universals in its purpose is less than it can or should be. I never liked ping pong.
