The Spirit of Market Anarchy: A Critique of New Atheism's Secular Statism (Preface: Part 1.2)
7 days ago
In Part 1.2 of The Spirit of Market Anarchy which concludes the Preface to the series, we finish our preliminary definitions and considerations that will be of importance in this 8-part series about religious freedom and the logical and historical errors of the New Atheists (Sam Harris, Richard Dawkins, and Christopher Hitchens) in their critiques of American religion. We will lay out some of the economic basics that will be required for understanding exactly why atheism allied with socialism is a great stain upon freethinking in general, and how that alliance (inherited primarily from Bertrand Russell and Christopher Hitchens--two Marxist atheists) introduced elements of statism into antitheism and New Atheism that are inimical to individual freedom. Many atheists of the present generation, in the quest to free themselves of religious errors, have also been programmed by typically Marxist thinking into an acceptance of some basic Marxian errors. Here we focus heavily upon the tenor of error that became entrenched in mainstream atheist thought due to the heavy influence of Bertrand Russell upon American disbelief.
