What is Awakened Politics, Conscious Politics or Enlightened Politics?

Awakened Politics is the assessment, creation, proposal and pursuit of new and improved Public Policy and Community or Social solutions that are based upon, built and evolved from the point of decision-making taking place under a condition of full awareness and consideration for all factors involved, driven by the unequivocal pursuit of fairness, balance and justice, and what is in the best interests of all members of the relevant constituency involved.

As a minimum, the attributes, experience and qualities of any Awakened Politician will include their ability, commitment and will (and in no order of prioritisation):

  • To be fully self-aware.
  • To be human and to prioritise humanity, conscious thinking, actions, behaviour and life above all ‘things’.
  • To treat all other human beings as equals, in thought, in word and in deed.
  • To be able to see, understand and value all sides of an argument or dispute and undertake to always access all the information necessary and from enough sources to make a fully reasoned judgement, even when circumstances are fraught or pressurised.
  • To take all decisions on Public Policy based upon what is known to be at that moment, not on the basis of what could be, what might be or what if?
  • To make decisions that run contrary to public and media opinion or subjective narratives, even when they might appear to reflect the zeitgeist or common view.
  • To recognise and discern the needs, impacts upon of the person or upon persons they are least likely to identify with and treat them the same as if they were themselves that same person and have nothing in life to support them beyond the person that they are.
  • To not be intimidated by the perceived power and the different circumstances of any other.
  • To be able and willing to ask questions which lead to understanding of impact, motives, circumstances and likely outcome from all perspectives.
  • To understand and respect the realities of human nature in all things and in all circumstances.
  • To see, volunteer for, promote and live the role of being a Public Representative as a calling or as a vocation. Not as a job or a career.
  • To recognise the role of money, currency and all systems of payment as a method only and not as being a ‘thing’ in any sense.
  • To be the voice and reasoning of the third parties who are not present or represented, or are not ‘in the room’.
  • To be able to empathise without being emotionally compromised or without becoming emotionally entrenched, or to recognise and act accordingly when they are.
  • To have a rudimentary understanding of how business, organisations, economics and the regulations and regulatory system that governs the activities of them all work.
  • To have practical experience of working with and leading a range of different people in different working environments and circumstances.
  • Understand, question and asses the motives for something being proposed.
  • To uphold the correct decision, even when it may not be popular to do so.
  • Understand and make allowances for their own biases, aims and desires.
  • Understand the practical implications in terms of desired outcome (advantages) and the undesired outcomes (disadvantages).
  • Be able and prepared to reject proposals and solutions that create imbalances that are not essential for the greater good.
  • To see their role through impartially at all times, particularly when under pressure from subjective influences that seek to compromise the objective nature of any decision-making process.
  • To respect the outcome(s) of the accepted democratic or electoral system and method used to determine the outcome of any proper and legitimate election or plebiscite.
  • To practice the Principle of Charity in every conceivable and valid way.
  • To be able to be a leader, even when being led.
  • To understand or make allowances for the positive and negative behavioural effects of a decision.
  • To understand the impact of circumstance and relativity to conditions for people in all circumstances and situations.
  • To be able to consider and visualise the impact and consequences of Public Policy decisions up to for as many times removed as necessary, upon people, upon businesses, upon organisations, upon existing Public Policies and upon the relationship between us all and with all others.
  • To be able to make arguments based upon being constructive, improving proposals or suggestions already made, or making clear the flaws in such proposals or suggestions that may not be apparent to whoever initially made them.
  • To be able to determine exhaustively the difference between wrong and right based on the freedom of the individual to be, in relation to the freedom of all others to be, set against the needs of the community to provide public services and support that is accessible to everyone in the same way, when required, on a universal basis and no more.
  • To be able to assess and understand the process of conditioning that creates innate or unconscious prejudices as well as those which the person is aware of, and how these influence behaviour and impact society when that person has an influential role. They will be particularly aware and conscious of any such prejudices within themselves.
  • To be able to look beyond the detrimental behaviour of any individual group and consider their needs impartially, as they would do any other individual or group.
  • To be committed to localisation, deglobalisation and the priority of the community, our communities and our Country, from the grassroots up.
  • To be committed to working collaboratively with all other nation states for reason of mutual benefit without relinquishing or surrendering political control to any person, organisation or government of any type that would have the ability to create, impose or police governance of any kind upon people, businesses, organisations or public bodies of any kind that they themselves are responsible to and have been elected to represent.
  • To see and treat Government, Governance and The Public Sector as tools of facilitation to be used on behalf of The Public for the Public and Greater Good, and that they are not and should not ever be treated or considered to be an entity that can prioritise itself or its existence in any way or at any time.
  • To never surrender the power to decide on behalf of the relevant constituency that has been entrusted to them to any Political Party, Ideology, Social or Demographic Group, subjective interest or bias of any kind, for the full period of their elected or appointed term, or until the moment they have chosen to relinquish that responsibility and formally stepped down.
