The public are having to protect their institutions from the people in charge

14/08/2011

Something has gone seriously wrong if the citizens have to protect public institutions from the people in authority whose responsibility it is to safeguard those institutions.

A most unsettling situation: the people at the frontline have to protest to the politicians & policy makers whose responsibility it is to optimise the functioning of the system. What do you do if these politicians and policy makers propose policies which undermine and dismantle the system, while telling you they are making it better?

It’s better than having to go out and riot. I hope.
