Politician – Wikipedia

Politician sau om politic este o persoană cu un rol important în activitatea politică; reprezintă ocupația celui care își desfășoară activitatea principală în acest domeniu.

Există și politicieni care nu țin direct de vreun partid politic; aceștia se numesc „politicieni independenți”.

Politicienii sunt oameni care sunt activi din punct de vedere politic, în special în politica de partid. Pozițiile variază de la birourile locale la birourile executive, legislative și judiciare ale guvernelor regionale și naționale.[1][2] Unii ofițeri de poliție aleși, cum ar fi șerifii, sunt considerați politicieni.[3][4]

Conform lui Max Weber[5], un bun politician trebuie să aibă trei calități:

  • pasiune (Leidenschaft)
  • sensul răspunderii (Verantwortungsgefühl)
  • sensul proporției (Augenmaß)

Conform fostei senatoare australiene Vicki Bourne[6] calitățile necesare sunt:

  • să fie modest
  • să fie agreabil
  • să gândească strategic
  • să se specializeze
  • să aibă țeluri clare, care pot fi atinse

Wiki Government

Collaborative democracy—government with the people—is a new vision of governance in the digital age. Wiki Government explains how to translate the vision into reality. Beth Simone Noveck draws on her experience in creating Peer-to-Patent, the federal government’s first social networking initiative, to show how technology can connect the expertise of the many to the power of the few. In the process, she reveals what it takes to innovate in government.

Launched in 2007, Peer-to-Patent connects patent examiners to volunteer scientists and technologists via the web. These dedicated but overtaxed officials decide which of the million-plus patent applications currently in the pipeline to approve. Their decisions help determine which start-up pioneers a new industry and which disappears without a trace. Patent examiners have traditionally worked in secret, cut off from essential information and racing against the clock to rule on lengthy, technical claims. Peer-to-Patent broke this mold by creating online networks

They Cracked This 250-Year-Old Code, and Found a Secret Society Inside

The master wears an amulet with a blue eye in the center. Before him, a candidate kneels in the candlelit room, surrounded by microscopes and surgical implements. The year is roughly 1746. The initiation has begun.

The master places a piece of paper in front of the candidate and orders him to put on a pair of eyeglasses. “Read,” the master commands. The candidate squints, but it’s an impossible task. The page is blank.

2012 bugAlso in this issue

The candidate is told not to panic; there is hope for his vision to improve. The master wipes the candidate’s eyes with a cloth and orders preparation for the surgery to commence. He selects a pair of tweezers from the table. The other members in attendance raise their candles.

The master starts plucking hairs from the candidate’s eyebrow. This is a ritualistic procedure; no flesh is cut. But these are “symbolic actions

“Trust Us On Covid App” Says Government Who Lied About Sports Grants, Water Licences, Travel Expenses, Asylum Seekers, ASIO Leaks And Robodebt

“You can trust us to use the data from the coronavirus tracking app appropriately,” says a government which secretly directed taxpayer funding towards marginal seats in order to win an election and later lied about its involvement in the scheme.

The Prime Minister – who oversees a government that bought millions of dollars of water rights from a company that was chaired by a government minister – said Australians could depend on the government to do the right thing.

“We urge every Australian to download this app that tracks their movements,” he said, preferring not to remind voters of the time his government paid a shady Kangaroo Island-based company $423 million to oversee security in Manus Island, without using a tendering process.

Ignoring questions from journalists about how top secret information from ASIO was leaked in order to undermine the medical transfer of asylum seekers in 2019, Mr Morrison said
