Canadians need to get their brains in high gear before going to ballot box


Why We Make Bad Political Decisions and How We Can Make Better Ones By David Moscrop Goose Lane Editions 265 pages; $22.95 Well, it’s election season. Important decisions, like political ones, though, need to be made in the long-form mode, so we don’t elect people who will ignore climate change and the buildup of nuclear weapons. Moscrop argues that we can learn to make better decisions and, as a result, make democracy more vital. First, we have to want to make better political decisions, a self-improvement project that may or may not rank very high on people’s to-do lists. After that, it gets even harder, since Moscrop suggests we need to start engaging in politics with diverse groups of people.
