Saturated Language is Starving our Political Futures

1. Understand the importance of language in constructing worldviews and enabling/limiting our collective and individual agency.

2. Expand our own perspectives, and so our vocabulary. Politics, culture and the arts are at their very best when inspired by diverse backgrounds and worldviews.

3. Embrace change and allow for risk-taking and experimentation by government:

4. Take up the mantle of citizenship. We should believe in our ability to work with others to invent our collective futures.

Footnotes:

  1. It goes without saying that there are of course lots of people across the country (and world) doing brilliant, innovative work, but often it seems this approach isn’t reflected in UK party politics.
