Introduction to Efficacy and Integrity in Government


Our political system needs some love and attention.

We are Developing ways to bring individuals together to speak out as a collective voice for fairness, transparency, efficiency and sustainability in all Government policies and activities.

 Philosophical Approach

Lead, Inspire, Enable, Protect, Reward, Share

What are we trying to do?

Offer a Single Point of Truth for people of all ages, views and backgrounds to find out about issues and policies that may impact on their life.

By leveraging the work and thought of thousands of people who care and who produce thoughtful analysis on current issues and people who provide alternatives to current thinking.

Providing a flow of communication with evidence based information to people regardless of their view.

The objective is to inform with evidence and let people make their own decisions.


Context

This is a high-level anecdotal view of the mood and behaviours of the population 

  • People are disallusioned with current public figures who govern.
  • People are under pressure in their daily lives and are bombarded with an overwhelming amount of information.
  • People don't trust publicly elected officials.
  • People "believe" main stream media.
  • "main stream" media are subject to external pressures not to report certain information (example: pre-election reporting (or absence thereof, of critical information) 
  • Only some people read Indpendent Press.
  • People are after entertainment.
  • Everything is too hard, too confusing.  
  • Complacent and unaware.
  • Everything is great, all is good.
  • I am just one person, how can I make a difference.


We need leaders.


 What is the Problem we are solving?

  • Uneven flow of wealth throughout society.
  • A lack of empathy for the vulnerable, displaced and disenfranchised. 
  • Inadequate political representation within the current party structure. 
  • A political system that has been corrupted by ineptitude, greed, vested interests and immaturity.
  • Apathy, hopelessness, a sense of helplessness, disengagement and disenfranchised people who are unable or unwilling to engage in the process of pro-active interaction with elected government representatives.
  • Ways to inform and motivate individuals to create a collective voice of reason.


What are we going to do?


Engage people at their own level.

Enabling and motivating  individuals to speak out about the things that affect their lives, families, friends and neighbours.  Create a simple mechanism to amplify the collective voice by identifying major issues affecting our society.

Develop a straight line between policy and need.

Make it the social norm to Share Wealth.

Expect our politicians to be fully informed about what they are voting on.

Change the attitude toward governing and Government from a narrow top down "capitalist" structure to a more compassionate, practical and effecient process that affords well-being and opportunity for every Australian citizen, ally, friend and visitor. Change the narrow monopoly of media and biased incomplete (at best) reporting.

Ensure the flow of wealth runs through the economy and feeds every level of productivity,  fostering well being, promoting trust, compassion, collaboration, sharing and pride in a peaceful vibrant community.

Change our culture to have a much higher regard for compassion, generosity and efficiency over net worth.

The Process

  1. Create Meaningful and Fair Policy Strategies and Structures that address the issues of the flow of wealth, good governance, sustainability.

  2. Inspire individuals who share these values and bring them together in a powerful, collective voice that can change our culture.

  3. Support candidates who are committed to the implementation of these policies (regardless of Party).

  4. Find and Support Leaders who insipire unity, fellowship and compassion.

  5. Continue with Purpose - Iterative and ongoing feedback, refinement and assessment of needs and successes. 

  6. Encourage people to grow, learn, live and attain their goals.


Virtual Party Concept

 With more Independents standing and winning seats in Government, it is important that they are able to provide informed opinion and leadership across the range of issues affecting our economy.  The concept is embodied using an example policity structure that may look like: "12 Pillars" Policies for Fair, Efficient and Effective Government.

The idea is that Independent elected members can form fluid groups to support, amend, debate policies that are intended for legislation.  Using collective resources will enable a more diverse and relevant set of policies.  Independents can join / support / debate /create as many policy areas as they wish and use the collective resource to refine and take to the Parliament.

Candidates can also use these policies to support / debate / initiate as part of their election campaign without having to align themselves with any of the major parties.

Having a pulbished and debated set of policies from a diverse group of elected members of government will provide a more robust way of agreeing a legislative framework that reflects the needs of the electorate. 

  1. Living Wage for 18+ or UBI - Univesal Basic Income https://basicincome.rocks/
  2. Community and Housing
  3. Education and Life Experience
  4. Health and Wellness
  5. Government Income - Taxation
  6. Immigration and Foreign Policy
  7. Defence and Infrastructure
  8. Natual Resources and Agriculture
  9. Governance, Law and Order
  10. Arts, Science, Innovation
  11. Electoral Integrity (Boundaries) and Organisation Ethics
  12. Working and Living

 

The flow of wealth.

  • Create a torodial flow of wealth that flows up and down.  Start at the bottom, heat up the economy so the wealth flows up with the economic spending driver, followed by the trickle down effect of more jobs, more effective wealth distribution and fairness.
  • Collect sufficient taxation to ensure all policies can be delivered in the spirit they are intended and so that the system is sustainable and robust.
  • Less complexity with more straightline relationships between policy and need.

What Happens Now?

We are building a team of people who can pull together the content and technology to provide a platform that is easily accessible and effective in joining people at street level to the influencers and decision makers of policies that affect the daily lives of individuals.
