Responsibility: A Problem For Other People
After reading this article in the local paper, it strikes me that if those interviewed are actually representative of the area, we have some significant problems.
It appears to me that most of these people have no concept of how our political system was designed to work, that political parties differ because not everyone thinks as they do, and that a government that can rapidly enforce change and ensure full employment will be totalitarian, which will bring an end to this whole notion of speaking your mind in public.
But most of all, there is overwhelming desire to have someone else take care of problems. And that never ends well although most people seem to forget government's actual response to disasters as soon as normality returns and are shocked when the same performance occurs in the next response.
