The September 23, 2013 issue of the Connecticut Law Tribune features an article on Attorney Dan Blinn’s work within the Humanist community. As summarized by the article,
Humanism is a belief that people are responsible for living ethical lives dedicated to helping others and are accountable to mankind. Some famous humanists include Albert Einstein, Confucius and Sigmund Freud. Humanists do not believe in any deity, but religious humanists adopt rituals such as religious gatherings.
When asked about the connection between consumer protection and Humanism, Blinn told the Tribune
Though his humanist beliefs weren’t the primary reason for creating a consumer protection law firm, […] there’s an undeniable connection between the two. ‘I started to handle consumer protection work because I wanted to find something where I could use my legal skills to make the world a better place. I started doing this type of law for the same reasons I believe in humanism.’
