In my opinion, all Data available with any Public Authority must be deemed
as Public Data. Only Data classified and declared as Secret affecting
National Interest should be excluded from the purview of Public Data. It is
best to put all G2G, G2C, G2B communications on the web on real time basis
by introducing a single e-Governance Tool where the entire vertical and
horizontal hierarchy of Governance from the national to the last local level
is integrated and all citizens / business are also integrated. Biometric Zip
Drives with sufficient security built around the inputting, transmission,
storage and retrieval of data is important. Any communication not included
under the Online Public Data System should not be recognized as official

Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and

Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

"A quick evaluation of the progress we have achieved in the last 20 years
shows that in the area of poverty alleviation, we have not done enough.
History will judge us harshly, unless we seize the opportunity to do more."

"There is nothing more sacred to a free people than the right to govern
themselves and take matters into their own hands when their elected
officials have failed them. When the very government which the people have
created to secure their liberty and domestic tranquility imposes restraints
on their freedom, the people have a duty to try to break the shackles
- Ward Connerly, Chairman of the American Civil Rights Coalition.
