ENCOURAGECHANGE.: Barrett Values Centre

ENCOURAGECHANGE.: Barrett Values Centre: "The principal value that governs the quality of democracy is Trust. There are seven other values that must be in place before people will trust each other and their government. Each value is dependent on the adoption and practice of the previous value. The sequence of values that dictate the quality of democracy are as follows: freedom, Equality, Accountability, justice, fairness, Openness and Transparency. Once all these values are in place then trust can be found. Trust is the value that enables nations to become internally cohesive.?"
