Third, they really don’t care. All they care about is being in office. And whilst opinion polls suggest it’s likely they’ll be re-elected they’ll carry on not caring that people might die. Call it ‘the Generals at the Somme’ attitude, if you like, because that is what it is.
Yes, true, but this is the problem with the Curajus State, is it not?
The game of politics is to get elected. Thus politics attracts those who wish to be elected. Things that are run by politics become things run by those whose only aim is to get, and stay, elected.
The reason things are run better when they’re not run by politics is that things that aren’t run by politics are run by those with other motivations and incentives than merely remaining elected.
