I disagree — if those sour grapes are not in charge and not allowed to reign in relative positions of power en masse, then things will change.

Relative to the entire population and relative to all those who could conceivably hold any leadership position, we’re talking about a small percentage of people — those who are unfit to lead and govern but end up in positions of power anyway.

In other words, the rotten few are controlling the entire population. That’s the dynamic we need to change. We have the numbers (obviously). But we are divided mind. If we are to prompt change by administrative means (e.g laws, policies, implementation), then we have got to first get on the same page regarding the end goal. Only then can we start to seriously consider proposals for achieving our unified shared goal.

Tapping out temporarily or even permanently is fine - it’s a systemic problem and not a one-person job to fix it!
