Camp: Agreement / Social Democrat

Camp Statement
Go live Time :


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.
