Abstract:

Democracy is about choice. But today it can appear to be a choice between personalities as major political parties squabble over different shades of the same policy. Is the great political contest of ideas over? Or are the divisions less obvious than they once were? How does the left balance competing ideas like free speech and avoiding offence? Why do classical liberals want to abolish the ABC and Australian Institute of Sport? And where do the left, liberals and conservatives agree, and why? Turning left or right asks these questions, breaks through the wall of sound bites and explores how century old political philosophies connect to practical policy for the 21st Century. Each chapter includes three essays from some of Australia's most engaged political thinkers who explore contemporary policy issues, find the dividing lines and reinject values and ideas. Importantly, every author's essay provides insight into the solutions they think are needed to make Australia a better country for future generations.
