Secular humanism is a big failure. Hopes based upon assumptions of an inherent goodness in mankind. They should have read the Scriptures and remember that mankind is fallen into sin.
Paul to the Corinthians in dealing with false teachers and empty philosophies. 
I Corinthians 11:1
Imitate me, just as I also imitate Christ.
Human betterment, which relies on incentivizing people to make good decisions to create a better society, will fail when the incentive structures fail. (Ben Shapiro paraphrase.) Incentivizing people to do what is right is evident when they think they are entitled to the wealth others have earned. It is clear when workers demand pay beyond their skill level. It is evident in the looting of stores and trying to steal your way to wealth through Ponzi schemes. 
Our Founding Fathers understood that governmental systems do not make a good society. People do. People whose hearts are moved by kindness and benevolence are the heart of any culture. 
Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
But in Christ we are a new creature: @ Corinthians 5:17
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
Our greatness was never in wealth but in the people who believed in Jesus and stood on righteous principles.

    That seculated humanism,
    gonna save the live-long day?
    Well, me mate, history’s a prism
    that says it don’t turn out that way.
    Go ahead and look to France,
    when they made Sixteen Louis shorter.
    If they were right, that should enhance
    the getting of their house in order,
    but instead they got the Terror,
    Robespierre and all his buds
    who did not quite see the error
    of dropping folks’ heads into tubs
    until that very moment when
    what they’d unleashed came for them.

    Good point, Rhonda, it’s not about the wealth, but the principles of righteousness based on the Righteous One.
