Socialism and Secularism: an uneasy relationship

Terry Liddle recounts the somewhat testing historic relationship between two dissenting ideologies

Socialism and Secularism are two revolutionary ideas which arose out of the intellectual ferment of the Age of Reason in the 18th century. In examining the lives and actions of 19th and 20th century activists in both traditions, such as George Holyoake, Charles Bradlaugh, JW Gott and FA Ridley, he asks whether socialism and secularism can better work together to combat the dangers of laissez-faire capitalism, growing religious fundamentalism and theocratic tyranny in the world today.

Terry Liddle is a founder member of the Free Thought History Research Group and a longstanding member of the BHA, NSS, SPES and Thomas Paine Society.
