Our communities are riddled with numerous social challenges that all stem from feelings of separation and isolation. Life needs to be about all of us empowering each other regardless of gender, age, race or beliefs. The best opportunities to change the world around you come through changing your connection with the people right next to you. By being a good MATE we can all help in bringing people together.
Men and Women (people) who focus on being the best version of themselves will support and uplift one another from a place of strength and empowerment. People living in this manner exemplify what it means to be a MATE and a true role-model to their children and their community. By focusing your energy on being the best version of yourself you will have the capacity to reach out and care for others.
One of the most beautiful qualities of mateship is that you are not alone...
How the Term Matesism Evolved
As humans, we all have a basic need to feel accepted, appreciated and connected. Even our brain and nervous system have evolved to connect with others. Humans are designed to be MATES. Yet so many people in the developed world are feeling isolated and alone. Loneliness has developed to epidemic proportions and has been related to heart disease, diabetes and early mortality. We see this as being a result of the ideologies which cause separatism among humankind.
Using the term Matesism suits in eliminating isolation and bringing us all together. Matesism is inclusive of every person on this planet. There is no mention of separation due to different ideologies. The collective term is Matesism, yet individually each of us is a MATE.
As a MATE, when you look around and see something that bothers you, you do your best to change it and know that it is the incremental changes in your life that will add up to reconfiguring the world around you.

MATE: a MATE is focused on being the best version of themselves to support, uplift and empower each other without blame and regardless of gender, age, race or beliefs.
True Equality: Every human being on this planet is your MATE or has the potential to be and therefore is to be treated and respected as one.
