Reform: 4-Pillars of the Liberal Awakening

Rights & Responsibilities

Personal Choice - Personal Responsibility - Role of the State - Global Happiness - Equality & the Distribution of Wealth

  1. Self Help
    1. If people are fortunate to be able to look after themselves then the state should withdraw from their lives. All welfare benefits (Child benefit, Tuition fee subsidies etc) should be taken away (ref. Social Reform...)
    2. Encourage self reliance: individuals don't want to be patronised and rely on the state to look after them: they want the pride that comes with independence and freedom.
    3. Wherever and whenever possible, people - not government - should take responsibility for their own lives and communities.
    4. Move away from government ought to do something toward citizens and communities taking ownership themselves. (eg. Obesity where people need to return to the concept of self discipline to solve the issue).
    5. Parents to have a life-long financial commitment to their children: absent parents (mostly fathers) who do not meet their responsibilities and commitments will be denied welfare.
  2. Community
    1. Encourage peoples 'natural' desire to help one another and neighbors - helping and encouraging others makes people happy.
  3. Migrants & Asylum Seekers
    1. Asylum will NOT be given to those who do not share our values of democracy, equality & tolerance, even if they face persecution back in their homelands.
    2. All migrants will pledge allegiance to the new UK Bill of Rights
  4. Religion
    1. Freedom of Worship enshrined in the new UK Bill of Rights
    2. The Human Rights of an individual and the new UK Bill of Rights will always take primacy over religious doctrine or tradition in a court of law when there is a conflict between the two.
    3. Intolerance or Bigotry disguised as religious belief will fall under this category (more...)
