Dissent is Democracy: It's About Broad Prosperity

Dissent is Democracy: It's About Broad Prosperity


April 7, 2024


In a time when the world is facing numerous challenges, from climate change to economic inequality, pursuing broad prosperity is vital. Broad prosperity goes beyond just economic prosperity; it also encompasses other aspects that people value now and in the future, such as the quality of nature and the environment, the state of education, the labor market, public health, poverty, and security.

Why is broad prosperity so crucial? Because it affects all citizens' quality of life and ensures our society's long-term sustainability. A society that thrives on all fronts of prosperity is more resilient and better equipped to face the challenges of the 21st century.

But how can we achieve broad prosperity? Dissent, or the expression of dissenting opinions and criticism, plays an essential role in this. It is through dissent that we can challenge the status quo, expose injustices, and urge policymakers to take more inclusive and fairer measures.

Dissent is a cornerstone of democracy because it reflects the diversity of viewpoints and perspectives within a society. By embracing different voices and providing space for debate and discussion, we can make better decisions that promote broad prosperity.

It is important to note that dissent is not only about expressing dissatisfaction; it is also about constructive criticism and offering alternative solutions. Through informed and constructive dissent, we can address the shortcomings of our society and strive for a future where everyone has the opportunity to thrive.

In short, broad prosperity is a goal we pursue for the entire society, and dissent is a powerful tool to achieve this goal. By embracing diverse perspectives and encouraging open debate, we can build a society that is not only economically prosperous but also resilient, fair, and sustainable.

I agree that dissent is a powerful force for positive change. it is only effective if it is channeled constructively. It will help build a society that thrives economically, remains resilient, treats its members fairly and sustains the planet for generations to come.

My concern is with our ignorant politicians and power houses, who are only concerned with political gains, popularity, fame and friends. the only way to be successful is to eliminate the causation.
