We believe a government should have the following attributes:
A mixed economy, consisting mainly of private enterprise but with government owned or subsidized programs of education, healthcare, child care etc for all citizens.
Regulatory systems over private enterprise in the interests of workers, consumers and fair competition.
Advocacy of fair trade over free trade.
An extensive system of social security, notably to counteract the effects of poverty and to insure the citizens against loss of income following illness, unemployment or retirement.
Moderate to high levels of taxation (through a progressive taxation system) to fund government expenditure.
Environmental protection laws, such as combating global warming and increasing alternative energy funding.
Immigration and interculturalism.
A secular and progressive social policy: Support for gay marriage, abortion rights and a liberal drug policy.
A foreign policy supporting the promotion of democracy, the protection of person (rather than human) rights and where possible, effective multilateralism.
As well as person (rather than human) rights, support for social rights, civil rights and civil liberties.
