Reason is inherently universal.  The greatest obstacle to the rational ordering of the world is simply that individual human beings do not realize their minds are part of this universal mind.
Mind progresses towards freedom by chipping away at this obstacle.

II Women are an oppressed class. Our oppression is total, affecting every facet of our lives. We are exploited as sex objects, breeders, domestic servants, and cheap labor. We are considered inferior beings, whose only purpose is to enhance men’s lives. Our humanity is denied. Our prescribed behavior is enforced by the threat of physical violence.

Because we have lived so intimately with our oppressors, in isolation from each other, we have been kept from seeing our personal suffering as a political condition. This creates the illusion that a woman’s relationship with her man is a matter of interplay between two unique personalities, and can be worked out individually.

In reality, every such relationship is a class relationship, and the conflicts between individual men and women are political conflicts that can only be solved collectively. (via Redstockings Manifesto)

Wikipedia Knowledge Dump Excerpts

The contents of the Voyager Golden Record is a collection of 116 images and a variety of natural sounds, such as those made by surf, wind, and thunder, and animal sounds, including the songs of birds and whales. To this they added musical selections from different cultures and eras, spoken greetings in fifty-nine[1][2] languages, and printed messages from President Jimmy Carter and U.N. Secretary-General Kurt Waldheim. The items were selected for NASA by a committee chaired by Carl Sagan of Cornell University.

illuminatizeitgeist:

“We are living in a culture entirely hypnotized by the illusion of time, in which the so-called present moment is felt as nothing but an infinitesimal hairline between an all-powerfully causative past and an absorbingly important future. We have no present. Our consciousness is almost completely preoccupied with memory and expectation. We do not realize that there never was, is, nor will be any other experience than present experience. We are therefore out of touch with reality. We confuse the world as talked about, described, and measured with the world which actually is. We are sick with a fascination for the useful tools of names and numbers, of symbols, signs, conceptions and ideas.”
-Alan Watts

I didn’t like the Alan Watts book I read  (didn’t finish) but he seems to thrive in the excerpt format.  My doubts come from the idea of paying too much attention to him.

Evey human being can recognize the truth of her own spiritual being. The individual conscience in the ultimate arbiter.

For if every human being is freely able to use her powers of reasoning to judge truth and goodness, the world can only receive universal assent when it conforms with rational standards.

Therefore all social institutions must be made to conform to general principles of reason. Only then will people freely choose to accept these institutions.

The history of the world is nothing but the development of the idea of freedom.

Redstockings Manifesto 

We regard our personal experience, and our feelings about that experience, as the basis for an analysis of our common situation.  We cannot rely on existing ideologies as they are all products of male supremacist culture.  We question every generalization and accept none that are not confirmed by our experience. 

Our chief task at present is to develop female class consciousness through sharing experience and publicly exposing the sexist foundation of all our institutions.  Consciousness-raising is not “therapy,” which implies the existence of individual solutions and falsely assumes that the male-female relationship is purely personal, but the only method by which we can ensure that our program for liberation is based on the concrete realities of our lives. 

The first requirement for raising class consciousness is honesty, in private and in public, with ourselves and other women.
