Policy: Righting Historic Wrongs (and Working On Modern Ones Too)

Previous: Business & Tax Reform

We will create an “Empire: Truth and Reconciliation” assembly, inviting persons from and with ancestral links to the wider Commonwealth to contribute to a tapestry of truth developed by the wider victims of the British Empire, to serve as the foundation of a full apology to all the victims of the British Empire through history – and to address the question of reparations; this would not be a single apology, but a sequence of apologies for all of the wrongs of Empire as identified by those most impacted by them.

For initial international development budgeting, we will create a special commission to conduct a metastudy to investigate the best possible spend for the maximum return on mitigation of suffering, and then implement the recommendations of that commission.

For subsequent foreign aid budgeting, we will consider banning lobbying for aid funds and implementation of a direct participatory national assembly for discussion of the best possible spend for the maximum return on mitigation of suffering.
