In the latest monocle Tyler B recommends that Ireland get a national mission, like Finland got from Demos.

At first the idea seems a bit woolly and socialist…. But then you start dreaming big dreams…


What if the world didn’t just wait for things to happen, what if countries all had goals for themselves, and those goals added up to a better world.

What if, instead of political double-talk, there was a simple objective – in a few sentences, written to have meaning not to avoid responsibility.

Wouldn’t that be nice. Would it make you feel as if change for the better was at least conceivable and not just randomly accidental?

Ahhhhhhh. Dream on.
