The hardest choices often have the biggest impact.
Spending too much time making a decision that only has a minor impact is wasted energy.
That’s why large inter-government conventions always disappoint. The outcomes are disproportionate to the size of the meeting and the resources required to make them.
While it’s true that the Laws of the Universe determine that the larger a group, the harder it is to get it moving, we also have the internet, which eliminates the need for physical proximity; Unless you want to whisper in someone’s ear.
It’s almost as if our leaders fear that without all the fanfare and security and photo opportunities and protestors, people might notice they don’t make many decisions at all; Unless you count choosing the status quo, of course.
The only thing more naive than expecting a government to make a real decision is expecting them to follow through with it.
But it’s a great show.
That’s why the clown got the ringmaster’s hat.
