Not Engaging in Our Fathers' Misconduct
(Also mothers' - Bett)
Read the whole article here:
"...the way to deal successfully with past misconduct is the same in government as it is with being a father oneself. Looking at local government leaders not with fear or anger, but with sadness and understanding, with an appreciation of the situational pressures on them, is the best way to go about changing the situational pressures and discussing the past in a way that leads to a new future, rather than the same old thing."
"...those who take
and hold power through intimidation, who abuse both subordinates and the
public, are sad people. Just like fathers who abuse their children. They are
people who lack self-respect, who can't win by playing fair, and who care more
about winning than anything."
