Politics has had a bad rap over the years. Anyone involved in this game is immediately distrusted and seen as a bad guy. Is it the game or the way it is generally played that is askew?
Is a new political system possible, one that is genuinely working for the people, in harmony with the needs of society, country and our environment? I believe it is, and so do the people at The Australia Institute who have come up with the Wellbeing Manifesto.
Here's an excerpt from their site: Many Australians feel that the political system has let them down, and that governments are not responding to their real concerns. We seem to have lost sight of a vision for a better society and to have entrusted our future to wherever the market takes us.
This website presents a new manifesto, one that takes as its starting point the belief that governments in Australia should be devoted to improving our individual and social wellbeing.
