To modernize the economy, optimize productivity and deal aggressively with poverty, inequality and the economic marginalisation of the majority.
To modernise education and have it promote a citizenry that is values based and cohesive, while deliberately articulating well into economic productivity and innovation.
To deal with the deep South African woundedness of racism, ethnicity, gender, family, brokenness, intersectional identity and the need for public consensus on national values and standards of being, towards a common national identity and constitutional culture.
