I won't claim to know everything. But, one thing that I do know is that we can, and must do better than currently do as a human race. We must remember that a government is one that consists "of the people, by the people, for the people". We must expect better - and we must work collectively to do and be as such. We cannot afford to do things the way that they have always been done. We must think radically by stepping outside the box, and put the people first. For what is a government, if there are no people to govern?
We can do better. It starts with us (the citizens) and ends with the leadership, not the other way around.
