The role of the blogs in uncovering for the public the real ‘goings-on’ behind the scene at the political level has been mind blowing -and good for the country.
However, that letter referred to by Adrian, as well as some feedback from Water works Department and more recently the Fire Service leads me to believe that there is an even greater role for the blogs to play, in exposing the gross inefficiencies, graft and complete lack of integrity in most of our businesses and institutions.
This would also enable us to see those organisations that are well run and that operate with high levels of integrity. This is important because it does not make sense to me, to expect that we will be able to produce top class leaders nationally when we allow a culture of dishonesty, graft and nepotism to bloom throughout the country.
Here is my proposal.
Every month, we select 6 organisations and invite specific analysis of their performance and operations. The CEO or whoever the organisation determines, would be invited to write the lead article (failing which we will invite anyone to do so) and the blog would be open to public inputs. Schools, Government Institutions, Public Utilities, Private Enterprises etc would be included. As comments phase out on a particular organisation, another one would be added. Special moderation approaches may need to be implemented to avoid persons using the opportunity for personal petty purposes – but this should be no problem. I think that this would provide a valuable national tool to promote excellence, deter mediocrity and ferret out dishonesty.

Do you agree with the Bush Man?
If so, can we have some suggestions on the entities we can discuss?
Other suggestions are welcome as we all play our part to safe-guard our democracy.
BU wish to offer the additional suggestion. Many visitors to BU and BFP are former journalists, politicians et al who no doubt are blessed with ideas, observations, theories and other forms of contribution acquired over the years; here is an opportunity to make a difference. Why depart this earth and take those ideas with you? The success of some of the world’s richest cultures are those which embrace knowledge. Students of philosophy may want to expand on the importance of sharing knowledge in the ancient societies.
