Democracy

I’m not sure who this saying is attributed to but it’s quite good!

“Democracy is not about changing the people in power but about changing the minds of the people in power.”

It seems to me that, too often, we change one set of people for another set of people who have the same or very similar mindset. Economic growth seems to be more important than people and the planet. Somehow, it must be easier to change the minds of our elected leaders than to find people who think differently and get them elected!
