Our political leaders are breaking a fundamental rule: no human being can prosper as an isolated individual, however impressed we may be with personal empowerment.

I just want to feel like me again. I just want to feel part of the real world. I want the old Krista back, even though I am no longer sure who she even is anymore.
I have just turned 21. Forget the felicitations; all I see ahead is boring adulthood and inevitably losing my ideals as I start to pay tax. But I don't want to talk about adult cynicism. I want to talk about youthful optimism.
With much of the public's attention now focused firmly on the election campaign, there is no doubt that political parties will be focusing their resources on those most likely to vote, a grouping disproportionately dominated by older people...
It's not your vote that really makes a difference. It's your actions in the five years between each vote that are important.
