SHARING IDEAS THAT DO GOOD

What do Australians value?

While our community is seeking a recovery strategy from recent dislocations, it is worth thinking about what we value as Australians and what sort of society we wish to be. Here are some thoughts to contemplate:

1.     Democratic: Free and fair elections (competition solely funded by the public purse); efficient, effective and corruption free government processes; community engaged with the political processes - and feels that they are listened to; the government respects civil liberties and minimises intrusions into people’s lives.

2.     Fair: Equality of opportunity for health, education, wealth generation.

3.     Compassionate and caring.

4.     Fun loving and happy.

What do you think?
