GOVERNMENTS THAT LISTEN to the community: WHAT A GREAT IDEA!

I support the proposition: “The federal government will be obliged to consult the Indigenous Voice to parliament when crafting laws on race, native title and racial discrimination which impact upon Aboriginal Australians.” (Source AAP/SBS)

Additionally, the federal government should be obliged to effectively consult the broader community (citizens jury or like process) when crafting policy and laws which have a significant impact on their lives and the wellbeing of future generations. Examples are climate change, energy policy, taxation & the social safety net, affordable housing, education, healthcare and the wellbeing, socialisation & learning development of children.
