The universe has no obligation to make sense to us or to aid us in our search for and actualization of good. Sentience itself wasn’t evolved out of any good will towards us subjects but as an instrument of Nature to keep on replicating. As beings capable of self reflection and radical transformation of our […]
I’m a sentientist because we should not be inflicting, without necessity, great suffering upon others. It is that simple. We should instead try to reduce and minimize the amount of suffering — no matter who is the being who’s suffering — through, among other things, cultivating unbounded reason and unlimited compassion. Gustavo’s Freethought Commands YouTube
Is an action to promote justice and equality for all sentient beings.

I have always been jarred by the differences in how we treat our fellow humans vs how we treat other sentient beings. As I matured I began to form my own set of beliefs, that our worth should not be defined by whether we are “human,” but rather, our sentience. My dog is sentient, and […]

As a sentient being myself, I’d say I’m proudly a Sentientist. “Social oppression needs animals oppression” Realizing the roots cause of every social justice’s problem is the idea some species are better than the others. We always have moral obligation to do better for human animals and non human animals. Free them, Free Us, Free […]
I believe our views should be based on naturalistic exploration of our universe, and that the most rational foundation for morality is the suffering and flourishing of sentient beings.
Humans have evolved to the most advanced order of Primates we are naturally sentient
