Yvette Jackie says her belief in a political model that focuses on the public interest and makes it possible to “overcome obstacles”.
Following the ever-threatening epidemic, the invasion of Ukraine has plunged our democracies into a series of crises. All European countries see their foreign, military, energy and food policies being brutally questioned. However, in these critical times when challenges are increasing and problems are interfering, social democracy is the most viable method for resolving the crisis because it combines two constructive strategies.
First, social democracy believes in progress. It presupposes that improvement in a painful situation is always possible. And in her struggle for justice and better living conditions, she never gave up.
“Working to unite the community while promoting the necessary changes.”
Second, she will always keep the public interest in mind. So, on the one hand, progress seems to be limited, but on the other hand it shows the ability to compromise and, on the other hand, strives to unite the community while at the same time promoting the necessary changes in collective and individual behaviors.
This combination of volunteerism and pragmatism is effective in overcoming political obstacles and dealing with burning issues. Although social democracy questions itself as a whole, it has strong potential on our continent.
In a dangerous, polarized world, hungry for simple cooking tips, he struggles to hear the voice of rationality and progress. Since then, it has become less attractive in the eyes of citizens seeking immediate and clear solutions. It is intensified by the fear that something will go unnoticed. This is the path followed by the French Socialist Party. From the domestic uprisings to the ideological hardening, he continued to distance himself from the citizens, resulting in a poor score in the recent presidential election.A sterile lash on the left side Within the framework of the forthcoming law. Conversely, if social democracy shows itself to be creative, cohesive and moderate, it is in business. This is the case In GermanyIn Spain, In PortugalIn Finland, Sweden, Denmark.
Responding to challenges
These tensions did not leave the Swiss Socialist Party either. Its strength lies in the combination of constructive idealism and solid government culture. With the 2023 federal elections coming up, its difficulty is to resist a race test for populist poses.
Social democracy is the right process to respond to the challenges that await Switzerland in the areas of purchasing power, energy, climate, security and European relations. It uses all its themes, without fanaticism. The demand of the humanitarian left is never to divide society, but to turn well-meaning people to action as widely as possible.
