Definition

  • We are a post-ideological meritocracy.
  • Policy and decision-making must be based on evidence and scientific reasoning.
  • The approach that works best, or the person who does the best job, must be chosen over the alternatives.
  • Where possible, we avoid making decisions or selecting leaders based on tradition, popularity, authority or ideology.
