The intricacies of life in a world about which we know very little

If you asked most ordinary people on the streets about basic details about how governments - national, regional and local - work you would be confronted with a barrage of 'I don't know'. If you asked about basic pieces of legislation, you would be confronted with similar reactions because in actual fact most people don't know how the authorities we elect work and have no real understanding of most of the legislation and regulations implemented.

If you wanted to know about immigration legislation, most probably you would end up asking a solicitor involved in immigration how things work and this clearly shows that the idea of being 'represented' goes much too far to the point that we know very little about the real world in which we live.

It is a bit like walking in the streets or across a park. Do you know most of the plants, trees, bushes and flowers? I bet that you don't. We live in ignorance and these levels of ignorance transform life into a very a very perilous journey indeed. We have eyes and we are unable to see. We have ears and we are unable to hear. We have very little understanding of what is really going on.
