Rebooting liberalism – part 2: Funding public goods

This is the next post in my series about Radical Markets. In this post I’m going to focus on coordination between communities within liberalism, and specifically how to coordinate the funding of public goods.

Rebooting Liberalism – part 1: Voting

Liberalism, the foundation of our current political structures, was conceptualised during the Enlightenment period in the 16th century.

A brief wonder about Uganda’s leadership.

– A system of government by the whole population or all the eligible members of a state, typically through elected representatives.
– a state governed under a system of democracy.
– control of an organization or group by the majority of its members.
Where is inclusion or leadership in the definitions above?
But it doesn’t mean we have to act deaf and blind. If you participated in the bush war using the guns, it’s unnecessary to keep fighting in modern society using words and suppression methods to the population. As young Ugandans can feel the pain and see scars that the war left, probably the catalyst to the leadership negative behavior.
Modernity encourages equity on top of the freedoms of speech, financial inclusion, education, inclusive leadership, share of leadership, mentor-ship, communication, health and security and protection that you promise.
In observation the divide between the poor, middle and rich class is increasing day by day. The fear among citizens is increasing day by day and is observed from some who vote for your leadership just for the fear of the war which could stem if you lost.
Is it what many of you in the army and governance of Uganda fought for? You would need to take a strategic step back and reflect, drawing from the examples of having members of parliament fighting in parliament before the nation, the expense of UGX29M on each individual parliament member to promote the change of article 102b in the constitution in a country where not even the senior public doctors and educators, earn a quarter of the equivalent. Yet the citizens pay taxes on a daily.

This means that all people in the system only need to trust the one central authority that run the system for you. The only drawback is that you really need to trust that central authority […]
