Towards Better Democracy

Good words, well written, better the world. Good literature betters the world immeasurably.

Why “Towards Better Democracy?”

Democracy is best viewed as a dynamic human force that continually seeks ever improving and more effective means of political expression for all people. The 18th century ideas and concepts that underpin present expressions of democracy can be strengthened by continual debate on what means may be used to achieve more open, accountable, consultative and participatory forms of government as part of an effort to better democracy.

Constitutions are essential as foundation for sound representational democratic governments, but can contain clauses which commit to more effective government through continual improvement as part of their foundational structure.

Of particular interest is debate on how democracy can be freed from subservience to mercantilism allowing each to work, democracy and the free market, more independently to their mutual benefit.

The best objective of citizens within a democracy is to create the means of allowing them to accept more political responsibility of, and for, themselves and hold their representatives at all levels of government to greater accountability.

A further objective of citizenry might be to seek to establish citizen oversight of government and quasi government bodies to ensure that such bodies are serving the public.
