Here’s the biggest problem. We give too much power to our (so called) “democratically elected” representatives. Dilute that power and all that remains is a job. Just give them work and responsibility. Make them accountable. Let there be generous rewards for good conduct and swiftly deliver firm penalties for any misconduct. Let the public servants be under the burden of stringent laws and not the public. After all, their ideas and actions affect billions of us, don’t they? Give them work to do and crack the whip. They are the servants, aren’t they? There’s no need to bestow so much power. It’s power that corrupts, doesn’t it?
