THE ROOSEVELT MOVEMENT

THE ROOSEVELT MOVEMENT IS

LEFT OR RIGHT?

We view the old left and right wing denominations to be anachronistic; we prefer to define ourselves as a socio-liberal movement.

We believe that people cannot be free, if not in a fair society that creates opportunities for all.
There cannot be a just and fair society without making sure people are free to pursue their interests, talent and profit.

A KEYNESIAN MOVEMENT

The Roosevelt Movement adopts a Keynesian view of economy. We believe prosperity can only be boosted by demand and widespread wellbeing. We believe it should be a constitutional right for everyone to have a job.

UNIVERSAL HUMAN RIGHTS

The Roosevelt Movement uses the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as the benchmark for all of our political activities. In a world where economics has become the main measurement for a country’s wealth, we need to bring people’s wellbeing back to the centre of politics.

A PROGRESSIVE MOVEMENT

The second half of the 20th century was characterised by the ambition to spread wealth and human rights beyond the National borders of European Countries.
Nowadays, due to unsuccessful economic policies, we see an involution towards a conservative and egoistic worldview. The Roosevelt Movement believes that the most economically prosperous period in history, also saw serious investment in society and people. We want to go back investing in people.

PRO EUROPEAN UNION

The Roosevelt Movement strongly believes that there is not better socio-cultural model than the European one. Nowadays, Europe is under threat of European technocrats trying to diminish both its appeal and power. We need to give people power over European politics- from within Europe.

THE ENVIRONMENT AND THE ROLE OF INNOVATION

Technology is the greatest asset we have to create a better society. Technology can be used to replace the labour force and to protect the environment by finding alternative power sources and production methods.  This is a great opportunity to reduce working hours, while doubling the number of jobs, and create a more sustainable world. We need to go back investing in research.
