Sound Familiar? "Failing systems are sumps of bad ideas"

The rot, you see, was not in the heaps but elsewhere;
less in the scavangers than in the heart of the dictatorial system. Failing systems are sumps of bad ideas, which have for a long time been subsisting on rent-taking and cronyism. Regimes which are about to fall can never get rid of all the toxic ideas circulating in its memory space, like a bad operating system that is full of memory leaks and dysfunctional background processes. At some point you either reboot or face the Blue Screen of Death. Until then such regimes are happy to occupy themselves with irrelevant trivia. -- Belmont Club サ Dustbins I Have Known
