Social Positivists

 teaching the church about human rights 


SUBSIDIARITY: an organizing principle that states matters ought to be handled by the smallest, lowest or least centralized competent authority.

Political decisions should be taken at a local level if possible, rather than by a central authority. (Wikipedia).

The Three Fronts

Risk is encountered on three fronts, the political, economic and ecclesiastical. Positivism is designed to reduce risk on all three fronts.

The political front must be reduced in scope and power in accordance with the principle of subsidiarity.

On the economic front the capitalist/communist option is rejected in favor of the Four Pillars Of Positivism. Social Positivism is a market and ownership model based on subsidiarity and human rights that eliminates the legal rights model of ownership.

The ecclesiastical front engages the administration of the church. Positive Preppers align with: Eph. 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Risk is a product of hierarchies and power disparities that produce liabilities. This is true regardless of whether we refer to politics, economics of religion.
