The Democracy Delusion by Bay Jordan
DEMOCRACY IS FAILING
The driving force behind most government has become the attainment and retention of office. Thus dependency on vested interests to keep them there means politicians have forgotten who really they serve.
WHO WILL REMIND THEM?
THE GAP IS WIDENING The gap between ‘rich’ and ‘poor’ is widening. This proves democracy is failing. All because our ‘progressive’ and overly complex taxation system encourages behaviour that plunders the economy and actively undermines its long-term viability.
WHO WILL STOP THE PLUNDER?
POLICY IS PERVERTED Government policy-making is limited, irrational and rarely for the benefit of the people government is supposed to serve. Lobbying, party politics, grasping for office, ideological rigidity and opinion polls have all perverted government’s role and its power.
WHO WILL CORRECT THIS?
SOMEBODY SHOULD DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT! In this ground-breaking book, Bay Jordan has decided to be that “somebody” and encourages you to be that “somebody” too. The Democracy Delusion sets out four simple ideas to restore true democracy and undo the harm done by conventional wisdom. Bay invites you to take ownership of these ideas, help them spread and make a positive difference. The Democracy Delusion is a passionate manifesto for peaceful, practical and powerful social change. RESTORING DEMOCRACY BEGINS WITH YOU! This fully revised second edition includes additional information on the threat of TTIP and a foreword by Lawrence Bloom.
