Humanism is a moral philosophy that embodies various idealistic goals for humanity which include but are not limited to gender equality, human rights, social justice, freedom from religion, the need to destroy prejudice, the need to eradicate all forms of abuse and slavery, and to cultivate a positive world based on love of one's fellow human.
