The Positive Politics Creed

I believe that:

  • each individual creates a unique mental model of reality filtered through their worldview,
  • persons with different worldviews may interpret the same situation differently,
  • all persons have the same basic needs and act on their priorities,
  • we live as a community and organize to enjoy one another and achieve common goals,
  • common and expected behaviors make up the culture with some beliefs valued as sacred truths,

Therefore, I will try:

  • to act as a good citizen,
  • to work toward shared priorities,
  • to model thoughtful, respectful communication and organization,
  • to support worthy causes and pay taxes,
  • to respect ethical authorities, and
  • to honor local culture,
  • as I use politics to conserve and change authorities, laws, and governance.
