The things are practically designed to breed disdain for the public.

Public consultation is hard to do well. Very hard.

I'm not surprised in the least that their public consultation process has been a joke. Making it work is hard, while making it a glorified press conference where they present their solution and then absorb the rotten tomatoes is easy.

I've never suggested that changing the landscape would be easy, that it wouldn't require enormous effort and endurance. Change is never easy, especially when you're dealing with players whose imperative runs contrary to the kinds of change we're hinting at here.

But the status quo is broken. We need to be prepared to fix it. Otherwise, we're going to get more of the same. Which I know few really would want, if the were given both the input and the tools to form truly qualified opinions.
