OUR PHILOSOPHY

Generally, the Political Ideology is an expression of values that the party hold dear, values that may set it apart from the rest of other parties.  It is about things the party is committed to and wish to create a conducive environment that will enable it to express that commitment.  In our understanding, the Political Ideology is an expression of who we are, what we stand for, how we wish to see what we stand for made and manifest, and most importantly, how we are different from some people who stand for other things. 

The Political Ideology of the ATM is Humanism in general and African Humanism in particular, and because of the realities of our country, we subscribe to aMixed Economy that is redistributive and empowering in nature.  Our philosophical understanding behind the Humanism ideology is that: “There is Only One God and Only One Race, the Human Race”.  Both Robert Mangaliso Subukwe and Nelson Rholihlahla Mandela subscribed to this philosophy and political ideology.  As a people of the world, we must come to the point where we realise that the concept of race is a false one.  There is only one race, the human race, and that we are all members of it.  There is no they, but only us.  We are part of a large fellowship called Human Race.  We cannot separate ourselves from one another.   We are part of the same sea of love, one indivisible divine mind of God.  Sentiments that glorify Humanity know no racial distinction.  This understanding is also derived from the African wisdom of “Ubuntu” (humanity of the human beings), which the fathers of Africa’s independence, namely, Leopold Senghor, Nkwameh Krumah, Julius Nyerere and Kenneth Kaunda, used it to give the African belief and value system a socio-political expression, namely African Socialism.
