Methodist founder John Wesley had some of his teachings and writings compiled by a historical consultant. Using 20th century rather than 18th century phrasing, they would make a very relevant manifesto for 2020!. The famous list reads:

1. Reduce the gap between rich people and poor people
2. Help everyone to have a job
3. Help the poorest, including introducing a living wage
4. Offer the best possible education
5. Help everyone to feel they can make a difference
6. Promote tolerance
7. Promote equal treatment for women
8. Create a society based on values and not on profits and consumerism
9. End all forms of slavery
10. Avoid getting into wars
11. Share the love of God with everyone
12. Care for the environment
