Widening divide between government and the people
As the number of offensive operations escalates so the voice of disapproval gets louder but is still not listened to.
Our system of government allows the circumnavigation of any discussion with the public.
Instead, government staff find themselves locked away in fortified offices, visitors are treated like attackers and any discussion with the public is impossible; because the employees in government departments work from a premise that what they are doing is in the best interests of the people and the environment and that those who complain “just don’t get it”. ‘These complainers may be pitied for their ignorance but ultimately, “we know best”.’
As the gap between government and the people widens the government fear grows and, in the end, imposes “Martial Law” on its people. We call it “civil war”.
