Describe your idea:
Isn’t the purpose of politics to make the world a better place? To support the needy? To foster education, the environment, good health, community, happiness, peace? So, how are we doing?
There must be measures of happiness, fear/safety, financial security, sense of community, vitality & health – let’s bring them all together, and give a current and historic view of quality of life – which ultimately is what should be improved by Government.
Before we can make the world a better place, we need to know where we are now, and over time, if Government is working, things will improve. How can we manage it, if we can’t measure it?
What problem does it solve?:
It will help provide direction to society and politics, a way of seeing whether we’re “getting there” where our destination is much further ahead than the next general election, and much more attuned to the hearts and minds of the people than some lofty political goal, because we’re taking stock FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF THE ELECTORATE.
Type of idea: A brand new project
