V. The Unity of Mankind
V. The Unity of Mankind.
14. The origin of the human race is one, in virtue of a common descent from inferior types of being.
15. The nature of the human race is one, in virtue of the universal possession, in varying degrees, of the same fundamental faculties.
16. The destiny of the human race is one, in virtue of a slow but constant progress towards a universal and perfect civilization.
17. The human race ought to be a political unit, as a universal Republic of Republics based on the principle that the liberty of the individual is absolute except as limited by the equal rights of all individuals.
18. The human race ought to be a social unit, as a universal Co-operative Union based page 12 on free industry and free commerce,—labor and capital being reconciled by the education of ignorance and the reformation of selfishness.
19. The human race ought to be a religious unit, as a universal Brotherhood of Man, based on faith in human nature and love for all human beings.
20. Thus the human race is one in origin, nature and destiny; and it ought to be one politically, socially and religiously.
