Presenter’s Guide

This guide provides some background and outlines an approach that may be useful for those who wish to discuss these core principles with family, friends, and neighbours, groups of various kinds, local businesses, as well as with politicians and government officials with a view to raising awareness of our rights and of the duties of governments to protect them.

Our intention is to focus on the areas where we are united—on the principles that almost all persons share and that almost all would agree must be used to judge whether the laws, regulations, policies, practices, and actions of governments are sound. Our intention is NOT to be drawn into debate about particular policies because such discussions can be endless and counter-productive. The purpose is to focus on the principles themselves.
