The Evolutionary Party is a political movement promoting its aims and objectives through the belief these ideals are part of natural human progression – giving rise to our name.
Current thinking, limited by capitalism’s expectations, religious dogma, and plain old ignorance, stands in the way of human advancement. It is clearly within our power to allow everyone the world over to enjoy the benefits of a civilised society, while at the same time respecting the planet and those we share it with. The only thing stopping us, is us.
The Evolutionary Party firmly believes that the human race is destined to evolve into an egalitarian race, and has been slowly doing so since we first step foot on this planet. Though we could, at present, do with a little encouragement.
The right to riches is so entrenched in our thinking that altering the way we perceive our responsibilities to the creation and distribution of wealth is going to be one of the greatest moral challenges of the twenty-first century.
No forced legislation or bloody revolution is ever going to be effective in redistributing wealth. Only by convincing those with both money and the means to create it, to see it as their responsibility to use it for the common good, will we have a world where equality is at the core.
A major stumbling block to the quest for living in harmony and sharing the worlds resources equitably is our interpersonal relationships with each other.
We’ve been taught to see marriage and starting a family as sacred, the ultimate goal in life, yet in reality far too many marriages end up in divorce, or worse, exist on a basis of ignorance and hypocrisy.
Belief in religious doctrines, contrived in some cases centuries ago, often with no basis in scientific fact, are still blinding millions of people from reality, and creating hate and violence.
Organised religion desperately needs to catch up with the times and find a useful peaceful and tolerant purpose in society.
Lack of education, or the wrong sort, hampers a persons ability to think clearly, preventing them from seeing past their own prejudices, and learning to have broader world view.
Free and accessible quality education with an emphasis on inclusiveness and equality needs to become the cornerstone of all societies.
This is not about the politics of left or right, it’s about common-sense prevailing over greed, selfishness, indoctrination and ignorance. We need to accept the fact the current way in which we live will never deliver a world where everyone has the right to the benefits of a civilised society, where vested interest are not put ahead of the common good, and all those we share this world with are given the respect they deserve.
Our belief is, that with proper information, education and encouragement, the overwhelming majority of people will always accept change for the better. Since humans first set foot on this planet we have been evolving towards a more egalitarian race. It is also important to understand there is more than enough wealth to share so everyone the world over can have a high standard of living, while at the same time enjoying diversity and individuality.
The question is, can we evolve?
If we change the way we think and we can change the way we live!

Changing the way people perceive their responsibilities and roles in society is no easy task. It requires patience and tolerance, old habits die hard. Progressive views are also often misconstrued, especially by those resisting change, resulting in fear, a major obstacle to advancement. It is, therefore, essential that The Evolutionary Party accepts the reality that the important ideas we promote should be seen as sowing the seeds for human development for future generations.
It might seem futile to think that our only solution to the troubling woes of our civilisation is to trust to evolution, a fix that could take centuries. But alas, even within developed countries, perceptions and habits are slow to alter, and to achieve the sort of equality we’re envisaging the overwhelming majority of people globally need to heed the call for change. And unless we continue to highlight the absurdities of our current systems and encourage people, in a peaceful and tolerant manner, to broaden their viewpoint the world may not progress, or even worse, regress. Salve yourself with the thought of those who had the challenge of getting people to believe the world was round.
It is important to remember that the ideas The Evolutionary Party promotes to help make the world a fairer, safer, more tolerant, and ecologically sound society, are exactly that – ideas. By encouraging people to think outside the square we’re starting the process that will hopefully lead to lasting change, attracting those the with the necessary skills to work out the finer details.
The political aspirations of The Evolutionary Party need to be limited to those of a pressure group. It’s far too often said that you can’t achieve anything in opposition, yet the contrary is actually true. It is only opposition to the status quo that brings change. We will be a force in parliament to help pass progressive laws, those which help bring about our aims and objectives. The compromises associated with parties seeking to rule in their own right too often strip them of legitimacy.
