Democracy to our peril is at risk. Like the criterion, “ justice must not only be done, justice must be seen to be done” where we very often just witness justice in the courts in action, the cart is before the horse, and very often, justice fails to be done. What we should have is “Not only must Justice be seen to be done, justice must in actual fact be done” Likewise with Democracy: We claimed to be democratic, yet in actual fact, we are anything but. Democracy in name only while an aristocratic tyranny is the reality is in dire straits, and needs to be resolved so that true democracy can developers along the rule of the people by the people for the people. Corporations aren’t people; and should not be capable of holding countries within Europe to ransome. And government figures should be accountable to the justice we claim to propound in full transparency. We need a fully inclusive democratic system where all the people are equal not just at birth, but throughout their whole life, to the dignity and comfort that life has to offer: and trickle down economics, as we have seen is anything but equal. We are caretakers of a beautiful planet. Europe without a doubt is the most beautifully established: but it isn’t for us that we should be thinking about in relation to how we use and abuse it: the only footprints we should leave here is the footprints of our children. Yet we have horrendous homelessness; really! Capitalism we need, but a capitalism that caters for all in a fair and just manner. One child homeless is one child too many. And there is much hungry homelessness hopeless asjlsa and children upon our streets. So can we claim to care about our fellow human beings if even one is suffering? We need to be inclusive of young people on our plans for a better brighter more benevolent Europe. A Europe that does what it says on the box, a Europe for all. The Petty posturing of politicians pontificating like peacocks is anathema to transparency and accountability when it’s just politics being seen to be done, and poltroonary at best. So let’s havw a major change! Make ethics the growth industry of the political spectrum. No more college debating scenarios where winning the argument is all that matter as politicians guffaw and browbeat opposition just for the sake of point scoring. Let’s not just see democracy being done, let Democracy “be” done.
