The founder is an Indian male, named Ayush, in his early twenties.
He is a citizen of a country that has all but criminalized religious criticism, and does not look kindly on organized political dissent. Thus, he needs to be careful about what he says about himself, if not what he says about anything else.
The founder is very worried about the rise of religious, political, and nationalist sectarianism around the world, specifically the resurgence of European fascism in response to the no less worrying Islamization of Europe, the increasing influence of neo-fascist Hindu nationalism in India, and the secular fascist machinations of the militaristic NATO.
However, the founder is far more worried about the reaction of the common public, because any problem that has the potential to be an existential threat to human life or human freedom can be dealt with, if the masses can be mobilized. He has noticed the worrying tendency of individuals to pretend, against all the evidence, that there is simply no problem, or to claim personal inability to solve a problem as an excuse not to act, or to be affected by the Bystander Effect, in which they assume that someone else will solve the problem, so they don’t have to. Needless to say, none of these tendencies enable a solution to any problem.
The founder is motivated by a desire to, first and foremost, not see the world burn in nuclear fire during his lifetime. He does not think that the best solution to global conflict is global annihilation.
Any and all other motivations are private, and not meant to be shared with complete strangers.
The founder hopes to create a global civil society that is free (in classically liberal terms), nonreligious (in that it is secular) and egalitarian (in that it does not discriminate against individuals on the basis of race, sex, socio-economic status, religion, or nationality). He is a pragmatist, and understands that creating such a global society will take time and effort.
However, he is also impatient, and wishes to achieve as much as possible, as fast as possible. To this end, his primary focus is to convince those who already agree with his ideology to act i.e to engage in organized propagation of the revolution. His secondary focus is to convince those who disagree with his ideology to agree, and join the revolution. This is not his primary focus, because it is a relatively phenomenal waste of time and energy.
