The solutions to our challenges are beyond politics

I watched the q and a program on ABC television last night. I went to bed disappointed! Few on the panel were able to go beyond self-interest and politics.

In Australia at present we have a weak opposition party (how incredible that in the age of collaboration we still have opposition parties in our parliaments) that doesn't seem willing to collaborate with the Government on solving the big issues facing us and our world such as dealing with climate change. A consequence is continued procrastination, rhetoric, and just plain dribble.

My solution is to side step Governments and bureaucracies at every opportunity without braking the law and get on with the job of building our new world. If we wait for the politicians it will be too late.
