How about we abolish suffering?
The purpose of this website is to increase a differential understanding about sentient experiences and causes of suffering. As suffering abolitionists we want to reduce the amount and the risk of unbearable suffering. Naturally, this involves increasing well-being and sustainable bliss for all sentient beings.
With this website, we aim to foster an understanding of suffering and well-being, by addressing important underlying mechanisms from both a biological and psychological perspective.
We hope to engage a community of suffering abolitionists and establish a productive and collaborative community-culture among goal-oriented people. To tackle the complex challenges on our hands, we believe that we need to grow diverse, resourceful and ambitious groups to work on many different cause areas of suffering.
Hopefully, together we will be able to apply thoughtful and effective problem-solving methodology and reduce suffering not just in the near but also distant future.
