I am fascinated by ideas that have the potential to be real game-changers in our society. Too often state policy-makers, in both the US and the UK, get blinded by the day-to-day challenges of resolving a multitude of issues themselves and fail to see those multitude of opportunities which exist within society itself.
Social innovators have a clear vision of the future: an ever-strengthening society with a reshaped state actively working for that society. The vision requires a new relationship between the state and society, and the question of ‘how we get there’ are ultimately what the ideas put on this blog are all about.
This blog aims to identify thought-provoking ideas that originate in the home of innovation; California, as well as discuss how such ideas might be applied to topical issues back at the home of democracy; Westminster
