Democracy means a fair go for all

Democracy means a fair go for all

A democracy has many common threads and integral to these are diversity of views. Gandhi said: Honest disagreement is often a good sign of progress. But honest debate can only come through trust and understanding, based on knowledge, not prejudices. Debates such as: Is it Australia Day or Survival Day?; a treaty is a good thing for Australia; or should we have a Bill of Rights? are important to our society, as they are embedded in the meaning and practice of democracy.
