Principles of Good Government & Government Administration & Control: What Are They, Where Are They? - Brian Maskell

Brian M Maskell is a strategist and an organisation development consultant with more than 50 years of world-wide experience. He has a very broad background of experiences – in both public and private sectors. He has a particularly strong interest in areas of public law and associated government principles and ethics; in cases of government breaches of those principles and breaches of trust that people of a country necessarily reside in their government; and in the coupling of such breaches of trust in a country to internal conflict and increasing tyrannical behaviour by an unprincipled government. Brian also has a strong background of experiences in and interest in applied sciences; human reasoning and learning; human cooperation for handling complex issues (he has been associated with two leading think-tanks); advances in the biological sciences; advances in nutritional and environmental medicine; and the development of cooperatives and their role in local production of nutritional and safe foods and their informed assertion of their rights as citizens to have their freedom to flourish.

Suitable for: adults only

Duration: 90 minutes

Presenter: Brian Maskell

 

Presentations

Part One: Introduction to the machine of government – key terms concepts & principles; the relationship - government & governed; obligations arising from required peoples' trust in government. When government fails the people – the source of refugees and conflict. Related discussions.

Part Two: Making statutes - and some of the principles that are supposed to constrain how they are made; the current forced fluoridation of public water supplies example; the Law Society's complaints to the UN; principles of statutory interpretation. Related discussions.

Part Three: Illegalities& absurdities occurring in government. Ignorance of key principles: the public; public servants; MPs; local government councillors and staff; no effective machinery-of-government controls on illegal, incompetent and absurd actions; difficult access to  justice (even if very rich); most lawyers (many judges) not trained/competent/experienced with necessary  public law skills. Related discussions.

Part Four: Initiatives: an 'education' and 'government-policing' foundation; likely alliance partners; peoples' collective role as 'assertive government'; collective values and principles as a form of sovereignty; the emergence of E-sovereignty and citizenship; the power of collective clout; asserting control over excesses of absurd and illegal government action; the current written constitution initiative; NZ as a world leader in outstanding government – possible? Related discussions.


Workshop themes

A wide variety and blend of workshop themes will be available for selection - e.g. control of environmental pollution [fluoridation of public water supplies, glyphosate-based herbicides, persistent organic pollutants (POPs]; learning versus education; futures and planning for future-proofing communities; nutritional medicine; avoiding the global financial system; treaties and loss of control; local government unlawful behaviours; submissions to MPs, Ministers, select committees; complaints to legislation and regulations control agencies; cooperative sovereignty;  and some flexibility to take and address other government- related themes suggested by attendees.
