"The King is Dead, Long Live the King"

One of the important and essential functions of any organization and institutions, is to train and prepare their successors, and if they don't do that, they've failed miserably in their mission and purpose -- and probably never realized it in the first place, and shouldn't have been hired the first time -- let alone making the same self-aggrandizing mistake over and over again.

That seems to be the essential problem of these organizations and institutions -- run for their own self-aggrandizement and gain -- rather than for the good of society as a whole.

People in the public service particularly, should be clear about that mission instead of thinking that everybody else exists for their own exclusive benefit(s) -- as their "public service."

That's why "education" particularly, has become exclusively about more money, benefits and less work for the teachers -- and nothing about the good of the students, and what the students want -- as though learning (the students) is the problem.

That is the quality missing from "public service" now because the unions have made it a purely self-serving, self-aggrandizing fiefdom -- to perpetuate themselves permanently at the top of the hierarchies and bureaucracies -- and to become more inbred with each succeeding generation who have never known any other way but doing it that way -- "as it's always been done before" -- instead of the better way that is always possible, but not done because they've never done it before, or allowed to think possible.

That's why organizations and institutions fail -- and lose their meaning and purpose for which they were originally conceived -- to eliminate and not perpetuate and enable dysfunctions, crime, ignorance and the appalling disregard for the welfare of everybody else -- in thinking that society and its institutions, exist for their own exclusive benefit -- rather than the general, greater welfare of the whole.

We've just moved the kings and nobles down to every level of the bureaucracies -- and so nothing can be done anymore, but to enrich these few -- as the function of government.
