Ever Decreasing Circles
by Steve Travis

A PM seeking to legislate for detention without trial ... Muslims detained as a Terror plot is foiled ... debate in the media where liberals acuse authoritarians of undermining civil liberties and authoritarians accuse liberals of wooly-headed softness on terrorism.

Yes - the news in Australia is exactly the same as it is at home. Today's letters page of the Sydney Morning Herald gives a flavour of the debate.

"What is Liberalism?: I should say it means the acknowledgment in practical life of the truth that men are best governed who govern themselves; that the general sense of mankind, if left alone, will make for righteousness; that artificial privileges and restraints upon freedom, so far as they are not required in the interests of the community, are hurtful; and that the laws, while, of course, they cannot equalise conditions, can at least avoid aggravating inequalities, and ought to have for their object the securing to every man the best chance he can have of a good and useful life." C-B.


The Apollo Project seeks to put together new ideas on policies and campaigning to help broaden the appeal and enhance the impact of the Liberal Democrats.
