Doubt is not a pleasant condition but certainty is absurd ~ Voltaire
The turbulence and volatility in Alberta’s political culture is not new but the hyper-partisanship and perpetual campaigning adds to the heat but not to the light. Rebooting a computer is done by typing CTRL-ALT-DEL.
Rebooting Alberta is going to about helping progressive citizens to actively partake in changing our toxic political culture. That means taking back Control of our democracy, creating an Alternative to the outdated Left versus Right political paradigm and Deleting the destructive hyper-partisan politics that disengages the rest of us.
In the Internet Age, political information has never been more available and accessible… and complex. Paradoxically, citizens have to work harder than ever to be truly informed.
More citizen engagement is needed for democracy to work. Citizens have to be more intentional and conscious about selecting and supporting a candidate and/or a political party.
Then there are on-going citizen’s efforts about finding effective ways to influence policy and issues that matter to them at election times and beyond.
I am looking forward to your comments and encourage you to share this site with other progressive Albertans in your family, community and your other networks.
