I have never found committees an effective way to bring about change..once you’ve done the first go ’round of discussion, the topic has shifted and the focus of the discussion skewed and invariably, the decision is diluted and the objective and need have been reduced to a shell of the purpose detailed on the agenda….I do understand it’s how governance works, but if we take a long hard look at what’s going on in the debate about raising the debt ceiling in the US, we can appreciate that the common good is very rarely the objective; mendacity, self-serving, hubris, et al is the modus operandi…..
