Summary
Can a return to radical direct democracy reconnect a jaded electorate with an out-of-touch establishment? Will reforming the toxic work culture of Canberra lead to more sensible debate and better political decision-making? Should today's leaders look to successful Labor and Liberal governments of the past to learn how to lead a government for a full term? Is change to liberal democracy itself needed? Politicians, journalists and thinkers from across the political and ideological spectrum propose these and other solutions to the many challenges facing Australian democracy in the twenty-first century. Leading Australian thinkers, journalists and politicians from across the ideological spectrum deliver a frank assessment of the problem and propose the radical reforms needed to put Australian democracy back on the path to delivering the equality, opportunity and prosperity it promised.
