Is the Movement perhaps the expression of the struggle in support of the dispossessed, the abandoned, and the persecuted? Or is it a manifestation of those who feel the monstrosity inherent in human beings not having the same rights and the same opportunities Contingent Creatures?

In modern times, many humanist movements have become strongly aligned with secularism, with the term Humanism often used as a byword for non-theistic beliefs about ideas such as meaning and purpose. Before the word was associated with secularism, German historian and philologist Georg Voigt used humanism in 1856 to describe the movement that flourished in the Italian Renaissance to revive classical learning; this definition won wide acceptance Emotion, Depth, and Flesh: A Study of Sensitive Space: Reflections on Merleau-Ponty's Philosophy of Embodiment. In the Dark Ages, a peasant stayed a peasant; he couldn't move himself up the latter. Humanism broke some of those barriers and made it possible for people to become succesfull, or at least better off than they were Playing by Heart: The Vision and Practice of Belonging. If inequality militates against human happiness and welfare, then it must be acknowledged as an important problem after all. Obviously, poverty militates against human flourishing—to such a large degree, in fact, as to cause a hopelessly immeasurable amount of human suffering. Unfortunately for Lindsay’s position, high levels of inequality entail that huge numbers of people must suffer from poverty and its wide assortment of associated harms The Divine Comedy.
As usual, we will meet in the upstairs room. Quests for the “historical” Jesus – not the Jesus of faith but a Jesus who actually lived and gave rise to the stories told in the Christian “gospels” – end with a wide range of Jesuses and often with the Jesus that the quester sought from the outset. Most assume that a historical person, clearly identifiable as the gospel Jesus, must have existed, and believers and non-believers alike often fiercely defend their own personal Jesus against Jesus-sceptics and “mythicists” An Inquiry into Human Nature and Other Basic Assumptions
. Whereas previous collections had been based on Halakhic (legal) discussions of the rabbis of the Land of Israel, the later Midrashim, edited in the fifth and sixth centuries, largely originated in the homilies of synagogues, which had become the central institution of Jewish religious life. These Midrashim were also devoted to an exegesis of Scripture, often in a sustained line-by-line commentary To Lead and to Serve (Report of the Review of the See of Canterbury)

. Are you saying that symbolic forms of resistance are ineffective in the long term? We think that symbolic forms of resistance can be effective in some cases, as part of a more total process of resistance and efforts to transform society. According to David Graeber, the Zuccotti Park occupation was not a symbolic act of resistance, but an effort to “get as many people as possible to camp in some public place and start rebuilding society as we’d like to see it.” We take him at his word The Human Kingdom: A Study of the Nature and Destiny of Man in the Light of Today's Knowledge

In reality, there is no formal alliance of women we can call "the feminists." Writers like Dickens and Tolstoy, painters like Turner, and musicians like Brahms were not 'radicals' or 'Bohemians', but were instead valued members of society who produced art that added to society, even if it was, at times, critiquing less desirable aspects of it. Modernism, while it was still "progressive" increasingly saw traditional forms and traditional social arrangements as hindering progress, and therefore the artist was recast as a revolutionary, overthrowing rather than enlightening Human Nature: The Categorial Framework
