constitutional mechanics 101

we commonly inherit national constitutional frameworks that were created within very different contexts to that which we are presently experiencing. thus what made sense many years past, now shapes our experience in ways which often are not comfortable.\r\nthis zone is for the exploration of evolving new constitutional agreements that best serve the needs of an expanding and evolving populous.

require government and medical employees to accept to have phone conversations recorded

    require government and medical employees to accept to have phone conversations recorded

    recently, i have been dealing with several different groups of a-gents from government and hospitals regarding different issues, ranging from 'planning permission' to family health. i learned long ago that many people will gladly step up for a salary and claim a position of authority to speak and advise, yet when asked or pressured to be put to the test in that capacity in a way that would bind them in a court case - they all too often do whatever they can to disown their authority and power position, in favor of silence. since i also learned that without a recording of a phone call with a-gents of institutions and corporate entities, the phone call may as well not have existed, i chose to inform the people i spoke with in planning that i was recording the call. here's the outcome:

    • a-gent #1: "no, i don't agree to you recording the phone call"
    • me: "ok, can you maybe put me through to someone who will accept me recording the phonecall"
    • a-gent #1: ... "i'll put you through to my supervisor"
    • a-gent #2: "no, i don't agree to you recording the phonecall either"
    • me: "i don't understand why you are willing to comment on the case i am calling about, but not be recorded, that suggests a lack of integrity on your part"

    in the end i got him to agree to communicate through email, so that a record was kept - yet what reason is there to prevent a phonecall being made of a conversation that you are willingly engaging in for purposes of the alleged government that is allgedly in service of the people? i accept that it is commonly a matter of personal preference as to whether or not you want to be recorded, but when in a government role where your actions effect the lives of many others, transparency and integrity are paramount.

    it is for these reasons that i would like to create a move to guarantee that all 'medical professionals' and government a-gents be obliged to allow phone calls to be recorded when acting in their professional capacity.

    i have no experience of getting such ideas enacted through government, but i'll put this out onto the web to see what comes of it!
