Missing: Agents of change

Updated: Sep 26, 2022

"Change is the process by which the future invades our lives."
– Alvin Toffler, American writer

There has to be someone or something we can turn to for stopping the of ethics and morals leading to the dismantling of decency and orderliness. There is no reason or purpose to accept the status quo inundated by lawlessness and infected by injustice unless we have become immune to this sorry state of affairs.

Agents of change are sorely required in the public sector. Why they are not standing up as the most desirable and dependable of the citizenry is a vexing concern. They surely need no motivation as it’s in their DNA.

Organised crime today is another form of government where the crime-stoppers and crime-creators come from the same fabric. Helplessness, apathy and arrogance step in neatly and nicely. The business of government trudges along maimed, deaf and blind but totally alert and aware to the next elections.

Agents of change have been replaced, at least temporarily, by the agents of necessity. This creates agents of sufficiency and the quintessential agents of passivity where nothing happens except to watch things go down the drain as if it is the national anthem sung in reverse. Many shrug their shoulders as a patriotic gesture.

You are nothing but the personification of naivete if you think the law is the agent of change, and that justice will prevail with its multiple manifestations of meaningless platitudes. Legislatures are an insult to the agent of change. They serve an artificial function not a beneficial purpose.
