Molly has just added another item to her links list under the heading of 'Other Interesting Links'. This is the Ottawa based organization Democracy Watch which attempts to improve the state of democracy in Canada by various campaigns involving violations of same by both government and the private sector. this site is quite far from anarchism, but it is a meliorist campaign that shares one of the central concerns of libertarian socialism ie the broadest possible participation of people affected by a decision in the making of same. I highlight this item here because one of their campaigns, 'Honesty in Politics' relates very much to what I said in the previous post about our mayor's broken promises. The Democracy watch believes that politicians should be penalized for breaking their promises just like those of us out here in the real world are. Drop on over to their site and have a look.
