Secular Party of Australia

The Secular Party claims as its heritage the philosophy of the Enlightenment, in particular the works of David Hume, Adam Smith and Jeremy Bentham. These thinkers explained the importance of finding human solutions to human problems, without resort to notions of the supernatural. They stressed the benefits to society of individual effort and enterprise, while bearing in mind the need to have regard for the common good of society, and of all humanity. The major achievements of modern societies are based on the application of such principles, establishing truth through reason, observation and evidence, and by the construction of rational social institutions without the involvement of religion.
