Launched last weekend in the UK: OpenLeft.
Open Left is about rediscovering the Left’s idealism, pluralism and appetite for radical ideas. It starts from a belief that the future of the Left requires a new openness for a new era of open politics:
- Idealism: open about its political values and goals.
- Pluralism: open about disagreement and debate.
- Radicalism: open to new ideas and policies.
We want to hear views and ideas from across the family of the Left, whether people identify with a political party or not. We welcome debate about political values and goals, and don’t presume to have a monopoly of knowledge about how to bring about effective and enduring change.
We are starting by asking an essential but contested question: what does it mean to be on the Left today? We’ve asked ten leading Left wing thinkers to answer six questions about their political motivations and beliefs. Check out what they said and then contribute your own perspective.
Wouldn’t be a bad idea here eh? Anyone?
