Complain & Act

Image result for complain

A government that wants to keep control, allows their citizens to complain and allows many avenues for complaints.

Complaining keeps the people negative thinking and reduces action, putting burden on action on other people, or the government.

This creates dependence on them and fosters the illusion that someone else can solve their problems.

It also serves as a release on the pressure cooker. After they complain, they feel better.

Then pressure builds up again, and they are allowed to release it, and the people calm down again.

No more complaints. Only action.
