How do you teach kids about what's right and what's wrong? What about how to listen and respectfully disagree to alternative views? Dr Simon Longstaff from The Ethics Centre suggests our politicians take this pledge ... what do you think? THE POLITICIAN'S PLEDGE As originally conceived, the practice of politics is intended to be a noble calling; the arena within which a citizen might contribute to the establishment and maintenance of a good society. Yet, without voluntary, ethical restraint, the pursuit and exercise of power risks becoming personal, brutal and self-serving; coarsening the polity, bringing public institutions into disrepute and damaging the common weal. So, consistent with the highest ideals of our profession, I promise that: In the pursuit of power, I will: • Act in good conscience, • Enable informed decision making by my fellow citizens, • Respect the intrinsic dignity of all, • Refrain from exploiting my rivals' private failings for political gain, and • Act so as to merit the trust and respect of the community. In the exercise of power, I will: • Give effect to the ideals of democratic government and represent the interests of my electorate as a whole, • Abide by the letter and spirit of the Constitution and uphold the rule of law, • Advance the public interest before any personal, sectional or partisan interest, • Hold myself accountable for conduct for which I am responsible, and • Exercise the privileges and discharge the duties of Public Office with dignity, care and honour.
