Take a good look around in public, observe people.|
Then see what Bozonian said.
The only hope we have is somehow hoping for a government that is better than the sum of it's parts.
We had that once upon a time, now we don't.
Well that's a good question but I think it boils down to leadership, people took the time and also IMO the government being smaller it was easier for a few good people to sway it, not that it was ever easy, it was just easier.
On the one hand you have a much more complex society with more complex interactions which argues for a larger government and on the other hand we all have our real world experience of seeing the government having the anti midas touch where everything it touches turns from gold back into ****.
So the idea of asking the government to do anything is frightening thought.
Maybe we should focus on removing a lot of that fear by focusing on improving the beast to be at least passibly efficient?
How to do that?
Ah there's always a catch.
