Open honest government

October 16, 2007

Thinking about our posts and about how many speak to integrity and honesty within society. I am wondering if we are at the point where we have problem identification down pretty cold and if we should think about what real world options are there. Is there a “state of the art” for open and honest government? I think about the listing for freedom of the press and I beleive that a scandinavian country like Finland is at the top of that particular list. Not sure how much that equates with open and honest but it seems like it would have potential to be a component. What would the measures be if we were finding a model of a society that is “working” right now – or, if that doesnt exist, which one is working the “best” by some objective measure. Maybe this kind of ranking is already out there – I have to confess that writing this blog is all the further I have looked into it.
