PUBLIC HELP NEEDED: Resolving complex issues in a modern liberal democracy

post-image

Our liberal democracy requires us to look beyond ourselves as individuals or as members of small tribes to be successful.   

As the two-party system based on old ideologies has lost its appeal, we need to discover new ways of reaching an agreement on what constitutes the common good on a range of issues, e.g., inflation, productivity, debt, national security, social equality and climate change.  

In Australia’s 2022 election campaigns, our two foremost party leaders avoid policy leadership. Instead, they respond to the fracturing of public opinion, the tribalisation of our society, and the power of grievance subcultures.
