We need to rethink the future of democracy and regenerate a workable strategy to avoid the rule of populists, Mediocrats (Mediocracy)* and Ineptocrats (Ineptocracy). This process of rethinking this model is for the security of future generations. Tunisia needs an Economy for employment and employability: it is good to have a diploma but better to have a job, an Economy needs not to sacrifice people but to finance projects for people, an economy that serves social civil beings, not economic beings, Tunisia needs an economy of anti-corruption not for corruption. It needs a mobilization not to redistribute the misery but to redistribute the wealth based on the value of “working” not “jobbing”.
