Note: by the time the cartoon at top was re-posted, the unique reader figure now is 203,091 (at 03/10/22)..... (this figure is conservative as some people may visit the site and not be counted — as they only see the cartoons and read the headlines.....)

YOUR DEMOCRACY ETHOS

The ethos of Your Democracy is its essential character, its DNA. It is worth stating at the outset of the project for the same reason that the elements of a pre-nuptial contract are worth discussing at the beginning of a relationship: at the start of every partnership, anything is possible - or so it seems. Just think of falling in love. Our ethos statement is like a pre-nuptial contract, which may help us think through possible eventualities which might arise before we start working together on this project. 

The ethos of Your Democracy is stated here in the form of mission, vision and values - which is management-speak shorthand for the basic elements of an organisation's ethos. Like a pre-nuptial contract, it will be worth little more than the paper it is written on if it isn't based on a series of genuine, trusting conversations. 

Our vision reflects our long-term aspiration; the mission is a concrete statement of the ends we seek to achieve, whose specificity should help us stay focussed on what matters, guide our evaluation of what we actually achieved, and work together collaboratively and cooperatively regardless of our individual differences. Our values guide us in every day management and will be honoured in pursuit of our mission. 

What's your democracy ethos? What you'll find on the site now is just a conversation-starter for an ongoing thread that will be revisited periodically to help us stay in tune with each other's thinking as the project evolves.

 

GUS LEONISKY (cartooning since 1951) BECAME A STRAY DOG IN THE PROJECT.

"Street dogs, known in scientific literature as free-ranging urban dogs, are unconfined dogs that live in cities. They live virtually everywhere where cities exist and the local human population allows, especially in the developing world and the former USSR."

 

John Richardson and Gus Leonisky eventually made a conscious decision to use satire alla Voltaire, with a tad of George Carlin savage vernacular when required "to save humanity from the dangerous lying bastards". Democracy is under constant threats from ignorance (we think we are clever), fascism (we hope we're not) and manufactured lies from government and media (we hope we tell the truth).

We have pushed the barrow beyond the proper, the neat and respectful, because most of our leaders are not neat, nor are they respectful of the people, nor are they proper... 

Whether we have an impact or not?... We could be like the cartoonists and satirists of the mass media who admit they don't have any impact on issues. It does not matter. For Gus Leonisky, we feel the need to expose:

 

THE LIES OF THE US EMPIRE (exposed here since the inception of this site — the US have lied since 1776)

 

THE NASTY GEOPOLITICS OF THE EMPIRE

 

THE THIEVES WITHIN THE SYSTEM

 

THE PLIGHT OF JULIAN ASSANGE AND OF OTHER TRUTH TELLERS (SNOWDEN)

 

THE HYPOCRISY OF RELIGIOUS BELIEFS

 

THE DANGERS OF GLOBAL WARMING

 

THE VALUE OF HISTORY IN CONTEXT

 

SOME ARTISTIC AND LITERARY ESSENCES

 

OUR OWN FAILINGS

 

SHOW SCIENTIFIC OBSERVATIONS AS OFTEN A POSSIBLE

 

AND MORE....

 

We hope we have not disappointed you, though we could be infuriating... The truth is often unpalatable....

increasing readership…..

Since passing the post of 200,000 unique readers to this little website yesterday, it has already added another 1000 unique readers (IN ONE DAY!) — Thank You. a unique reader is a person who has at least opened one "read more" article since 2005. it is estimated by loony Gus that about 10 times more people just pass-by and read the headlines and the cartoons without being counted. 

 

FREE JULIAN ASSANGE NOW••••••••••••••••••••••

KEEPING ASSANGE IN PRISON ONLY SHOWS THE EXTEND OF THE WESTERN HYPOCRISY (becoming more and more sophisticatedly covert) THAT WE WILL CARRY ON EXPOSING HERE.
