Do your job! Law student has enough of government’s excuses
As far as Your Lawyer Says is concerned, the government shouldn’t be getting a free pass from the public if it fails to deliver its services.
“The classic excuse of “change starts with us” in removing the blame from the government is flawed. A THREAD,” he begins a series of tweets.
While he admitted that it’s good to begin change with oneself, this does not free the government from its responsibilities, such as solid waste management, free and accessible education, enforcing traffic and environmental laws, among others.
“Not to say that your good deeds are left unappreciated and that we should all just be reckless, the point is that this should not free the government from its duty. IF WE WANT CHANGE, WE NEED THE STATE TO DO ITS ROLE. That’s why we complain, we criticize, we call out, we rally,” he said.
“Most of our societal problems can’t be addressed by self-change — it’s systemic, it’s widespread, it’s in a national scale, and only an entity with a compelling influence and substantial resources can address this — the State,” he added.
Change is indeed a two-way street!
