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 at What's a Protagonist?

My core beliefs:

There's no "why" in morality

The 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. I only need to say them because most people won't notice when they hold contradictory beliefs unless someone points it out to them. (And also because most of the below doesn't depend on Protagonist axiology.) I probably need to reorganize these categories a bit, but I'm not yet sure how.
