As the wheel turns and new needs arise, democracy evolves. Now is the the time to extinguish the Era of Exclusive Democracy and evolve to the Era of Inclusive Democracy. That is, extinguish a system that provides for the direct influence of the elites on political policy and outcomes. Rather move the voters, the ”people”, as close as practically possible to the policy-formation and law-making processes in a system that will thrive when access is opened to the people.
Welcome to our evolving website. It will mature in keeping with our progress toward completion of the design and the development of a new inclusionary parliamentary system for Canada; and a stream of consciousness is not good enough or slow enough. However, we are excited about completing and publishing the project which is already several months advanced.
BY AND FOR ALL PEOPLE
The Common Good
“… consists of our shared values about what we owe one another as citizens who are bound together in the same society—the norms we voluntarily abide by, and the ideals we seek to achieve. A concern for the common good—keeping the common good in mind—is a moral attitude. It recognizes that we’re all in it together. If there is no common good, there is no society. … Without voluntary adherence to a set of common notions about right and wrong, daily life would be insufferable. We would be living in a jungle where only the strongest, cleverest, and most wary could hope to survive. This would not be a society. It wouldn’t even be a civilization, because there would be no civility at its core.”

Excerpt from: Evolved Canada-Democracy
In the relatively recent past voters could rely on the two-dimensional continuum to guide them. But today, in this late coming period of diversity and inclusiveness, the continuum is no longer useful as a guide. A result is that the people are unhappy, confused and find it difficult to identify what they want. Evolved Canada-Democracy, a non-political-party democracy, will afford the voters the opportunity to express themselves directly through an unshackled parliament with the expectation that the government will address their needs and act upon them. There will be no filtering by a political party that is more concerned with re-election than the needs of the population as a whole.
