Urgent: Let’s all engage in our democracy for a better future!
For the first time for many Australians, a view of a generally stable planet and world order is being challenged.   We have two major powers seeking to undermine liberal democratic government systems and a planet reacting negatively to the strains we are imposing.   In the past, Australians have been willing to make economic and life sacrifices to defend our liberty and leave a positive legacy.   Australians need to re-engage with our political processes and ensure that our governments have the courage, conviction, and capability to effectively lead us through challenges to world order and global sustainability.   https://www.democraticrenewal.org.au/

A set of election promises to start re-building community trust – and get my vote!
We will only intrude on people’s lives when a demonstrated and substantial need to do so exists.   When action is required, we will always seek to find the “common interest solution” that the majority can accept.  Our policy formulation, taxing, spending and donations approach will be evidence-based, fully transparent and consultative.   We will establish caps on political donations and spending, with a real-time declaration of money donated and spent and criminal penalties for non-compliance.All our politicians will sign a binding oath always to serve the country honestly and in the community’s best interests and be held legally accountable.

Tax Reform is a must. A Citizens Jury can lead the way!
When a big change is required, a democratic government should seek a solution that appeals to the majority and is least problematic to others.   Reform in Australia is inherently challenging as the ‘politics’ at both state and federal level can de-rail change, even if majority community support exists.   Tax Reform in Australia has been held back for too long by political wrangling and manoeuvring.   Our politicians should put their egos aside and seek community input via a Citizens Jury to determine a tax reform package that is viewed as a ‘common good’ and then get on with implementation.

No Managers more Leaders
Zhang Ruimin,  Chairman and CEO of Haier, recognised that the pace of change, and the growing complexity of the customer experience, required more leadership; and that leadership needed to be redistributed lower and broader throughout the Haier community. He has reconfigured Haier so that almost every employee can think of themselves as a CEO. In the process, the basic unit of work at Haier became smaller and smaller, to the point where, today, it is truly a micro-enterprise. This outcome fosters greater energy and engagement, more and more novel ideas, and a higher probability of talent fulfillment.  https://www.forbes.com/sites/billfischer/2021/11/05/n
