But if you are on the 22nd floor of a tower block, the state literally has your life in its hands. It is the state that told you to stay put in the case of a fire. It is the state that failed to install working fire alarms. It is the state that you rely on to come up the stairwell to save you and your family from a burning building.
And given that state’s obvious incompetence we should be trying to change that power it holds over people, shouldn’t we?
Like, reduce it?
