The Thursday Council Dogma

  • I

    Happiness is inviolable. While one shall never be expected to be perpetually happy, they should strive to act with compassion, empathy, and to interact with others peacefully, constructively, and in an ultimately uplifting manner. While not all Thursdays are happy, it should always be an overarching aspiration to bring joy and humor to others; for to disrupt or hinder one’s pursuit of happiness is to be in violation of the fundamental Thursdarian philosophies.

  • II

    The race for justice is endless and glorious. As our society grows progressively more politically, economically, and socially polarized, it has become nothing short of necessity to radicalize one’s beliefs to aspire for and achieve a world in which all are truly equal. The ultimate goal is a society where peoples’ freedoms are both never encroached upon, and a lack thereof is never imposed on others. And as people are fallible, we must strive for a community where all are fully forgiven of misdoings when wrongship is both mutually acknowledged and entirely rectified.

  • III

    Indiscriminate acceptance is the basis of virtue. The Thursday Council must judge solely on controllable character, not intrinsic traits. All people, regardless of race, gender, religion, or any and all other factors of oneself, deserve utmost respect and shall never be discriminated against unless they fall victim to violation of the Thursdarian Dogma. Even in such a case, all are redeemable, per the Second Doctrine.

  • IV

    Excess ego is the root of malevolence, but self deprecation demands returning self love. While hubris and arrogance is a corrupter of persons and vile actor in society, appreciation of oneself is as important as of others. Sincere hatred of oneself requires immediate remedying, for none are beneath the importance of good health.

  • V

    The philosophies of the Thursday Council are among the highest priorities of all active members. Blatant disregard, contempt, and unjustified criticism of the founding principles of the Council are akin to disrespect for our ways. While not immediately deserving of disassociation, all violations of this Doctrine must be followed up with adequate reasoning, in which case the Council shall discuss said rejection.
