A New Direction

The term democracy means “demos” = people, “cracy” is from the Greek word “kratos” = power. The term “party” means the rule of a part over the whole. This produces a superficial democracy by establishing committees and propaganda through its members. Parties are formed to achieve the will of it’s members who each share the same belief, interest or perspective while gaining power to extend their values over society as a whole. The party is a dictatorial instrument of government that provides a small minority with an authority to rule over the people as a whole. The more parties there are, the more neglected and economically destructive society becomes due to the parties constant struggle for power. This results in the neglect of any beneficial plans or social achievements which is a defeat for democracy, and the people in every community, as parties are in fact often bribed and corrupted from inside or outside, typically after leadership is formed representing the party elite.

Party politics having failed, we the people need to share our own views, discuss ideas and prioritise issues. Let the people vote on every issue, the time has come for us to participate in the political decision making process together instead of representatives voting on our behalf.

Democratic representation is vital to the happiness and prosperity of the people. Those accepting such responsibility require and expect the fullest support of the people in fulfilling their duty. We will rebuild our communities and prosperity through democratic renewal, with the people proposing and deciding policy on all issues – including on questions of business, economy, bank debt, our natural resources, health, social care, education, industry, the environment and international agreements. As a representative, I will assist the Constituency in supervising public administration, ensuring the implementation of the people’s policy decisions and the provision of services for all, based only on need. I accept the right of the people to recall (un-elect) any representative who fails in their duty to carry the mandate of the Constituency. If such an exceptional measure is required it will be decided by a binding Constituency plebiscite.

When people become actively involved in participating in the political decision making process the call for protesting diminishes and feelings of anger; fear and despair throughout society become eradicated. Therefore behaviours resonating with the mentality of helplessness and apathy are substituted with a sense of ownership and pride, thus producing a happier and preferably more responsible society with much lower crime rates. We need no party or sham ‘opposition’, we need no lies or threats, we can and must secure our own democratic representation!

A real republic exists when people are Constitutionally empowered to restructure bureaucracy towards mutual assured prosperity.
