Democratic Governance should be about seeking policy balance
that benefits the whole community. It is where loyalty to all citizens overrides
loyalty to factional interests.
Martin Wolf, Chief Economics Commentator at the Financial Times,
has published a new book, “The Crisis of Democratic Capitalism”. I recommend that
any citizen interested in reversing the decline of our liberal democracies and creating
a better society read this book.
All citizens should better engage with our country's
governance and, along with our journalists and commentators, demand that our
politicians support individual policies with clear evidence of wide community dialogue
and majority support.
