O.K. supposing you were in charge of a country, talking completely idealistically, what would you want for that country?
Just to paraphrase: what would a successful country look like in your opinion?
If you were to really think about it you might create a list of necessaries and desirables for this successful country. You might think generally or you might take it down to what every individual might experience when they exist in that country.
This idealist ponders.....
I want this country to give everyone equal opportunities, treat everyone fairly, encourage everyone to reach their potential and live a fulfilled life. This would mean nobody lived in relative poverty and it would tackle a lot of social ills - like crime for example.
What's the plan Mr Cameron?
I'll wheel out Maslow.....
