The leader of the Liberal Democrats sets out his personal beliefs and political vision to create a new political language and a new brand of politics. Politics and government are in danger of going out of business unless politicians adopt a fresh and innovative approach. In this text, Charles Kennedy sets out his views on the problems and the solutions - he intends to reinvigorate politics by promoting a new agenda and inspiring a new generation of voters. Until now politicians have been far too slow to react to the challenges created by the forces of globalization, technology, market liberalization, social division, environmental threats, voter disengagement, issues surrounding individual liberty and devolution. They are still tied to the old models of nation states and parliamentary sovereignty. Only if liberalization, decentralization and deregulation are promoted can our political system adapt. Kennedy also argues that government should promote greater redistribution of wealth within society, though not simply through the "tax and spend" mechanism. In "The Future of Politics", Charles Kennedy has created a political language and a form of address which provide radical solutions to the unprecedented problems of our society and the world today.
