Catchphrase: “Critical citizens of an educated nation.”
Do you have absolute faith in democracy? Absolute faith in your fellow human beings? Do you believe that with just the right amount of education and encouragement, you can unite our community to right the wrongs of the world? For Bernard, hope springs eternal. He’s a firm believer that discussion and careful planning are necessary before any action can take place. For him, there’s nothing more important than following the rules, and making sure everyone has a chance to have their say. But what about actually getting things done? Is anything really going to change whilst you’re all sitting round in a circle, holding hands and talking about your feelings? The rules of the system are unfair, but do you have the courage to bend them, or even break them, to obtain the society you want? Perhaps not.
