Help Wanted: A Politician We Can Trust

It's about how they decide vs. what they decide that counts
Sharrock's insight:

This article explores a reason we should value transparency, but also, to evaluate the decision-making process that is/was used: "America is plagued by too many people just wanting to know “the bottom line” and whether you’re with them or against them. Having a process, planning, thinking of contingencies seems largely un-American or perhaps we just don’t have the patience for it." Mark Goulston, M.D., F.A.P.A.

The same points can be made in other countries and jurisdictions i.e. Canada and Alberta. Politics is now ideology which pits people against people. It goes beyond process. We need to have authentic and thoughtful conversations and stop depending on failed and failing institutions. Politics is about people and their relationships, which includes daily life. Education, not School, is a great opportunity for children to learn how to live together.

Sharrock's insight:

 Do you really pursue diversity in your friendships and work relationships? What have you discovered when you really listed your friends and work relationships? Differences include class, race, religion, sexual orientation, gender, age, political beliefs, nationality, intellectual, education (and even more). Do people really have "nothing" in common? When is "having nothing in common" a good thing? Stories of happy surprises are welcome.
