Description

The poll-driven excesses of today’s party politics can be seen as the triumph of an impoverished view of democracy that discourages the virtues of good leadership and personal responsibility.  In an ongoing contest between opposing visions of democratic power we find history repeating in current debates about the ‘nanny state’, ‘middle-class welfare’, the power of the media, the mining industry and the quality of politicians.
