Albanese’s Labor Government is having an extended honeymoon. The Liberals are still agonising over losing power.
Both parties suffer a “relevance deficit” for most Australians. They represent dogma driven by left vs right historical positions, labour vs capital, and conservatism vs progressive. Their structures and processes reflect the last century’s society and cannot collect, digest and build community consensus on complex issues effectively enough to serve the best interests of today’s Australia.
Australia needs a party that can lead open and broad community dialogue, listen and then present evidence-based policies to the electorate that meet the “common interest” test.
