CREATING UNITY AND VALUE IN OUR COMMUNITIES
Our nation is wounded from years of hateful politics and divisive media, and we are only as strong as our weakest members. We stand for rebuilding national unity beginning at the local community level. We will create new social programs to encourage Neighbourhood co-operation, respect and well being. From community gardens, and development projects, to local feats, and community support groups. The strength of our country is based on how well we look after each other. We must work together to change our culture of xenophobia, hate speech and racism. We are better than this. We must be better than this.
Living standards and Health
IMPROVING HEALTH, LIVELIHOODS AND INFRASTRUCTURE FOR OUR NATION
We face crises in health care, homelessness, and living affordability. Universal healthcare is not something up for debate in parliament, it is a universal right that must be funded and protected by the Australian government. A decent standard of living must also be created and supported by the government, including efforts towards ending homelessness and improving housing affordability, by constructing housing for the homeless, ending negative gearing and fixing investment laws. We also stand for the trialling of a national Universal Basic Income, to prepare our people for future economic changes in the age of automation. The sooner we prepare and act on these issues, the more we will be ready fro the future.
WORLD CLASS PUBLIC EDUCATION AND INVESTMENT IN OUR FUTURE
Defence and Community Protection
PREPARING AND PROTECTING OUR PEOPLE
The protection of our nation and our society has never been more important. The biggest dangers we face in this day and age are those that can hurt our communities, namely disasters and terrorism. We propose the role out of a new initiative of voluntary national service, to train Australian citizens in emergency procedures, disaster relief and threat response. We will make our whole nation prepared for any and all disasters, to ensure that nothing can ever break us, at the same time we aim to increase and revise military spending to further equip and train our armed forces to better prepare for the threats to our future, especially staying ahead of advances in drone and autonomous warfare, and taking a leading role in the ethics and laws surrounding modern and future warfare.
A GOVERNMENT LEADING BY EXAMPLE
High office is an honour, not a privilege. We aim to drastically cut parliamentary pay, entitlements and privileges. We will also implement a federal ICAC to target and prosecute corruption in our government. Our parliament is designed to lead our country with hope, conviction and leadership, and we take that responsibility very seriously. It is not a place for self-serving people and we will not tolerate any selfishness, ineptitude or pettiness in our nation's leadership or within our own party.
A GOVERNMENT RESPECTING AND CARING FOR OUR COUNTRY AND RESOURCES BY EXAMPLE
Our beautiful country is not a resource to harvested and destroyed by big business, it is the land, water and air that sustains all life, and it will be protected from those that seek to destroy it for their own gain. We will champion serious environmental protection laws, over-fishing laws and pollution laws. Immediate action on climate change and a focus on converting our nation to a renewable energy future. This planet belongs to our children and we will ensure that it is protected for them.
