Obituary: Gough Whitlam's Ideas Must Live On | newmatilda.com | Citizenship Education in Schools and Communities | Scoop.it
E. Gough Whitlam, Chifley Memorial Lecture, 1957:

“The way of the reformer is hard."

Edward Gough Whitlam, the 21st Prime Minister of Australia, died this morning.
It’s a measure of the smaller and meaner dimensions of Australian democratic debate in 2014 that his passing has immediately spurred an outpouring of grief and remembrance.

Malcolm Turnbull's loyal remaking | Citizenship Education in Schools and Communities | Scoop.it
As the year’s last sitting weeks for this unhappy federal government and its unloved budget tumble past, Malcolm Turnbull has been forced to break cover from his usual, blameless, “Who, me?” performance.

However, participatory democracy tends to advocate more involved forms of citizen participation and greater political representation than traditional representative democracy.

Ordering The Vegetarian Meal? There’s More Animal Blood On Your Hands | IFLScience | Citizenship Education in Schools and Communities | Scoop.it
Please note: the author of this article is Australian, and much of the information in the following article applies specifically to that area of the world. Farming practises differ around the globe. The ethics of eating red meat have been grilled recently by critics who question its consequences for environmental health and animal welfare. But if you want to minimise animal suffering and promote more sustainable agriculture, adopting a vegetarian diet might be the worst possible thing you could do.
