What Athiests and Secularists miss

This is a great video that shows some of the holes in modern atheism and secularism.
The essence is that we are in need of community, purpose, tradition...

Maybe not you... but there are enough people. Some general notion of culture could provide it, but modern atheists and secularists also tend to reject culture.

Which is great for a very small percentage of society.  Perhaps they feel themselves so enlightened that they are beyond it.  Which might the case for them.

But it misses the needs of most people.

I wish Alain De Botton luck, but I doubt it will get anywhere.

I personally think society has a better chance if the organized religions are made more tolerant or removed from power to remove their bad parts.
