heres the simply truth,give men power and some of those men will always abuse that power.
thus procedures must be implimented to prevent those men abusing power,in rome they did just that made the senate , only for another man(heil ceasar!)
to subvert and use it fot his own advantage resulting in the split of the roman empire and eventually its downfall.
now we have a similiar case,those we appointed to stop abuses of power are abusing power themselves,from the executive,senate, way down to thier
footmen such as these fine police officers.
and why is this the case, the method of appointing the custodians is flawed ,both at the top and the bottom.
so what do we do?,WE make only those who can uphold thier positions with honor and effectivness gain power.
in other words the citizens have to learn how to vote properly ,they must learn politics,they must understand how the power structures work otherwise
the cycle of power,privelage and abuse will forever continue.
it took us 5000 years of strife and anguish to create a system of democracy that was resonably effective at controlling the power strucuteres,dont
throw it away.
i say we have about 10 years to sort it all out or it will never come back, the empire will again crumble as the custodians are in it for themselves
once again,they care NOT for that which they are elected and upheld for.
forget not that the leeches can bleed thier host dry till no blood is left for anyone.
