We now live in a society of organisations and institutions. Local, district, state, national and at international level. Each one of them managed by 'professionals' (bureaucrats) following complicated processes which no one can completely understand or implement. They are all political creatures, and therefore possess all of the negatives of politics. We humans and even nations believe that things will just happen by themselves, but they never do. The cunning amongst us know
Conflict is a natural condition.* Partners, husbands and wives, children and parents, teachers and students, employers and employees, citizens and governments, etc. are often in conflict with one another and many other beings.

It is human nature for us to try and dominate other humans. The brute depends on physical force and it sufficed for them for thousands of years but the real domination came from overpowering the minds of the dominated and it is manifold more powerful.

When you know that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing, When you see that money is flowing to those who deal not in goods but in favours, When you see that men get rich more easily by graft rather than by work, and your laws no longer protect you against them but protect them against you, ...... then you know, that your society is doomed ~ Ayn Rand Though our Society has become sick, and one worries, we should not be so despondent
Democracies are messy and confusing. They have many advantages and some disadvantages. A peculiar disadvantage is that some people claiming to work in the interest of the people game the system to work only for themselves.
