Seems to me that all these problem and failing or failed departments which were once essential services have one thing in common. Privatisation. Profit dragged out of education, power, water and health is responsible for our woes. The services have been turned into money grabs for share holders and conglomerates. The essential is gone and so is the service . all these privatised departments are now ruined and the companies or conglomerates just keep on making them more and more complex so as to bleed them all the while putting a hand out for more tax payer funding.
Greed is great. amirite?
