the
political agenda

An overly simple explanation of a Political Agenda would be to call it a business plan for government. A typical business plan is 5 years and a typical term in office is 4 years, so in that respect they are somewhat similar. An elected statesman would be required to allocate resources to departments and coordinate projects. Those things are usually detailed in business plans as budgets and executive summaries as well. Then there is the mission statement. A mission statement is a short statement about why an organisation exists, identify what the overall goal of its operations is and how we can profit. A business plan is the minimum expectation of any bank before lending out money to any venture; yet politicians can run the country with just a smile and a handshake.

The
commons

The governance of lands, waters and air common to all. Here the solutions are proposed and worked into achievable project plans.  Budgets begin here. Election of items for the agenda and a public radio communication network.

The representatives

“The major problem—one of the major problems, for there are several—one of the many major problems with governing people is that of whom you get to do it; or rather of who manages to get people to let them do it to them.
To summarize: it is a well-known fact that those people who must want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it.
To summarize the summary: anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job.”
