Tomorrow, March 29th 2014, between 8:30pm and 9:30pm, we’ll be celebrating Human Achievement Hour.
This one-hour event coincides with Earth Hour, an annual event where governments, businesses and individuals dim or shut off lights in an effort to raise awareness about pollution. In contrast, Human Achievement Hour (HAH) promotes human prosperity.
Human Achievement Hour is a period of time during which one shows appreciation for human accomplishments by engaging in capitalist acts between consenting adults. For example, going out shopping, or using electricity or indoor plumbing.
“We salute the people who keep the lights on and produce the energy that helps make human achievement possible,” says Myron Ebell, of the Competitive Enterprise Institute, a D.C.-based think-tank that initiated the event in 2009.
People from all over the world will be celebrating Human Achievement Hour – one needs only to enjoy the benefits of the market process and human innovation to take part.
The event recognizes those who help make our standard of living possible – from doctors and nurses, to first-responders and countless entrepreneurs.
Human Achievement Hour encourages individuals to recognize that the 21st century is the greatest time to be alive.
Human Achievement Hour is a celebration of individual freedom and appreciation of the achievements and innovations that people have used to improve their lives throughout history.
Human Achievement Hour is a time to recognize that people are free to use their minds and resources in their environment to create, experiment and innovate.
