The right for freedom of thought is manifested in twelve Cosmonomic Theses.
They are an invitation to respect reasonably every single person. In addition dignity demands for a firm stand against destructiveness that is ruling archaically over the globe as a selfish power struggle of single persons, cliques or even misled peoples.
Nature is following evolutionary developments according to neutral laws. This means that there are life protecting as well as life destroying principles. In this view nature is without mercy and without compromise. But human brains are enabled by education to humanize the laws of nature and gain profit from them to enjoy life and ease the natural and convenient dying. This is a particular understanding that egoism can’t be the basis of humanity. Instead an individualism is needed, which is bound to an improving human society that regards the human being superior to any created ideal.
1st Cosmonomic Thesis: Human Dignity
There is no higher value than the human dignity. It is unimpeachable.
2nd Cosmonomic Thesis: Equal Rights
All people have equal rights from the very beginning of life. Peerage is anachronistic, clerical and military rankings as well as academic degrees give information about functions within the world of labor, but don’t play any roll in public life. Complete gender emancipation does not indicate equalization of men and women but the appreciation of their supplementary gender-specific differences.
3rd Cosmonomic Thesis: Non-killing Commandment
Nobody has the right for killing a person except in the case of selfdefence.
4th Cosmonomic Thesis: Dying with Dignity
Everybody is entitled to dying in dignity by choosing ease of pain and death grant preferably after early decree during lifetime.
5th Cosmonomic Thesis: Sexuality
Human sexuality is original private affair and depends only from human dignity under free control by the involved partners.
6th Cosmonomic Thesis: Social Care
The society is obliged to grant health-care, education and labor to every person.
7th Cosmonomic Thesis: Personal Success
There is a fair competition of talent and ability for professional success. Cartels and combines take advantage without justification.
8th Cosmonomic Thesis: Economy of Participation
Properties and merits that were established by honest work must be respected. The laws of inheritance have to be put into perspective in order to avoid big landowners and to encourage in any concerns the middle-classes. Honesty stands for provability and transparency of the whole economic system and rejects the exploiting capitalism to establish a humane economy of participation that reduces and finally defeats poverty.
9th Cosmonomic Thesis: View of the World
There might be democratic discussions about the views of the world, they have to be tolerated as far as they are free from violence. Indoctrination and missionary work come into conflict with the individual development of intellectual mind.
10th Cosmonomic Thesis: Environment
The environment belongs to all people in the same way as all people belong to the environment. The result of that is: Protection of animals, plants and landscape and the condemnation of the exploitation of natural resources just for the benefit of some individuals.
11th Cosmonomic Thesis: Causality
Considering all methods of thinking, it is to say that the causal-logical, scientific method is by far the most reliable one to support human dignity and to give respect to the individual. Religion and esoteric faith are well-known patterns of subduing and oppressing the believers via man-made “Gods” and their representatives.
12th Cosmonomic Thesis: Democracy
Comparing the systems of states, democracy is the most favorable constitution, nevertheless there is an urgent need for further developments. Parliaments must get rid of any lobbies of the various groups. Members of parliament, elected democratically, have to follow their own conscience and must be free from compulsion of party-spirit. The state and the churches (religions) have to be separated. Public media must be independent from political control, from influences taken by editors. Media concentration, forced by mighty editors, are not compatible with democratic societies. Election campaigns are nothing better than subtle manipulations. Money is absolutely no reason for coming into any political position.

Remarks in addition:
Life is following natural laws which are present everywhere in the universe. The new philosophy of Cosmonomy is based on this: Cosmos = universe, nomos = law.
The world can be explored, evaluated and explained without the necessity of any “Gods” or wonders. So Cosmonomy stands for cosmopolitan, pacifism and democratic humanity – possible only by adequate education.
It is very obvious that by far the most people in the world cannot share these views because of traditional and political reasons.
When discussing, cosmonomers should be sensitive and careful.
