If you selected Other, please name
Founder of OZloop. Former public servant. Left at the end of 2011 as I concluded that more public service can be done outside the Australian Public Service due to the damage being done to the public service - and many dedicated and progressive individual staff - by managerialism and corporate spin.
The public sector of the future should . . .
Trust employees to network openly with each other and citizens for the betterment of themselves, the public service and the community. And it should be doing this NOW.
Anything else?
Professionally, I believe passionately in the free flow of information and freedom of expression as a means of enhancing the performance of people and organisations.

The Lords of Secrecy and Australia's Surveillance State

I recently purchased Scott Horton's book Lords of Secrecy: The National Security Elite and America's Stealth Warfare. The book shows how the growth in the power of bureaucrats has undermines democracy. The major tactic being the misuse of secrecy and the amplification of fear through the exaggeration of threat.

These tactics have been employed by most democratic governments and are a threat to both democracy and good governance. Australia is no exception to this and most…

I feel like I'm on a treadmill out the door. And yes the default position is to support the manager. HR even wrote it in an email when I complained about the unfairness of a particular decision.

I've asked certain members of the team who have been impacted to also make a complaint. If at least four or five people make a complaint about their treatment it would provide a strong position. However the whole team is scared to bits and everyone has refused.

Many thanks for your support.

Hi Steve, many thanks for your comment.

I have received a contact from APS Dignity. The scope is wider than HR but HR are facilitating matters by supporting the managers and refusing to resolve any complaints. Its incredible the way they seek to minimise and reframe matters. All I want is a straight answer and an apology!
