Australian based, conservative (of the kind before the Right went nuts) leaning commentary on politics, media, life, the multiverse and whatever else crosses my mind. Home of the best widely ignored opinions on the 'net.
Perhaps reason and liberal values would be more valuable for their advancement than another brand of mysticism which can be used to justify irrational behaviour and bigotry. The history of western progress has been one of a struggle to cast off the dead weight of dogma.
I would suggest a leap from a belief in sorcery to "liberal values" is too big in a such a society - and probably has no historical precedent.A move from a positively harmful belief in malevolent supernaturalism to a belief in benevolent supernaturalism, however, is a much more likely step on the way to your desired final outcome.
