Time to shake up our weary old politics
The 2022 Federal election campaigns have been an insult to the Westminster traditions on which our liberal democracy was founded and to the electorate.   The lack of a serious and fulsome policy agenda by any party or candidate is contemptuous. It puts our economy, sustainability, well-being, and national safety in danger.   For too long, our politicians have sidelined the complex and vital decisions that need to be taken to have a sustainable physical and economic environment and a healthy and thriving community and democracy.   There is a better way, and we need to demand that our politicians change:     https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fCG6H8yELhE

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

Smart Walls and All - Israel Border Security Technology
Border security has increasingly become one of the most pressing issues within nations’ homeland security agencies. Though a controversial subject, there has been a consensus that borders must be secured humanely. A popular humanitarian solution has been the creation of smart walls. A smart wall is the use of technologies such as cameras, scanners, sensors, and radars used to prevent illicit entry, smuggling, and threats along borders... Besides Israel’s largest defense companies, there are several promising homeland security Israeli start-ups that specialize in smart wall solutions. Find out who they are and if they are relevant to your organisation: https://israeltrade.org.au/2022/05/06/israel-border-security-technology-smart-walls-and-all/
