A Theory of Social Governance

Yes, sounds about right:

Leave people alone for a moment. See what they come up with. Then leave that alone as well.

A very well argued article about the current political climate. i certainly agree that politics is more about making the right 'noises' than getting the job done.

However, I don't see why the author decided to give small-scale local projects a kicking, because trying to open community projects or deal with serious issues such as anti-social behaviour using a top-down approach does not take into account local variations in wealth, prosperity, demographics etc.

Give small-scale projects a kicking? Where did I do that exactly?

LFAT, where does he say that, exactly? As I posted over at Will's site, free kayaking would not be allowed in the UK under elf'n'safety laws. Or be illegal under an EU Directive or something.

Thought the article was balanced and made a good point.
