Protagonism: The Autodidactic Religion?

Most of the topics I write about can be considered philosophy, but here's where I post the ones about morals, metaphysics, and anything that would probably fall under "religion" if my ideology counts as that.

For a short-and-sweet label for my ideology, I've settled on "Protagonism". It isn't named after me, isn't easy to confuse with anything else, and isn't an outrageous attempt to co-opt an English word (like Ayn Rand's "Objectivism"). The story of the name is explained here:

What's a Protagonist?

My core beliefs:

There's no "why" in morality

A formal moral system

Notes on choice and morality

Pretty much everything below is just a corollary of the above. I don't consider the rest of it "part of Protagonism" so much as just the rejection of bogus ideas that are popular.
