Where to, Australia? (Paperback)
Where to, Australia? is a new and challenging look at Australia's future. It asks Australians to envisage the sort of future we could have, if we take control and demand the changes necessary for a better government and a better political system.
This book offers a journey to a more honest system, one less corrupted by money, and one that can give citizens better control over elected and appointed representatives. It has the potential of forcing politicians to think in terms of what's best for the nation, instead of pursuing the narrow perspective of winning the next election for a political party.
The book is in two parts. The first part explains the reasoning and philosophy behind each chapter of a new and better political system, a system contained in the draft of a new Constitution. The second part of the book is the drafted Constitution itself.
Do Australians want a true and honest Constitution, a document created by hundreds of people from all around the county? This new Constitution can be easily read and understood, because it's written by the people and for the people. And, no one needs a law degree to understand this Primary Law for an independent Australia.
This is Graham L Paterson's third book in a trilogy about Australia's Constitution and political history over the past century. He taught English as a foreign language at the Xiaogan University in China and has since had five books published by Foreign Language Press of Beijing, China. He now lives in NSW, Australia.
