The unifying concept of “inalienable rights” that belong universally to all God’s children have been distorted by our secular elites into notions of “tribal rights” and “identity politics.” The predictable result is rising levels of tribalism, divisiveness, polarization and (eventually) violence. We see a path to regain the moral high ground by exposing the culture of tribalism and divisive group retribution politics by recovering the timeless concept of universal rights for all human beings. The centerpiece of this educational movement is a reteaching of the work of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The aim is to create a new wineskin to re-teach the authentic American tradition of universal, fundamental rights to a new generation.

Matthew Daniels, J.D., Ph.D. was raised by a single mother in a section of Spanish Harlem with the highest rate of violent crime in New York City. When Dr. Daniels was eight years old, his mother was the victim of a serious violent crime that left her partially disabled. She went on welfare and remained on a welfare income for the remainder of her life.

After attending inner-city public schools in New York City, Daniels received a full scholarship to Dartmouth College where he graduated Phi Beta Kappa in 1985. He later received a Public Interest Law Scholarship to the University of Pennsylvania Law School, where he obtained both his law degree and a Master’s in Public Administration. He was subsequently awarded a doctoral fellowship in American Politics to study judicial policymaking and the rule of law at Brandeis University.

Dr. Daniels is the Founder & Co-Director of the Center for Law and Digital Culture at Brunel Law School in London, England, and an Adjunct Professor of Law at Handong International Law School in Pohang, South Korea. He has also served as an affiliate faculty member at the George Mason University School of Business in Washington, DC, where he developed a course on the protection of human rights online together with a team of faculty from GMU Law School and the GMU School of Business.
