We’re not going to fix Government, until we fix Citizenship

Jennifer Pahlka’s TED Talk Coding for a Better Government gives and interesting viewpoint on ways to fix the U.S. government.   She talks about addressing bureaucracy, which is the major underlying component of government, while politics is just a layer on top of that bureaucracy.


Some of you may be surprised to hear her idea that the Millennial generation has a surprising way to improve government.  It’s a proven fact that government is slow and expensive to implement change.  Private groups are able to create some of the needed valuable improvements, for much less expense.

I agree with Jennifer’s idea that the Millennials will improve our government and solve many of the current social problems, I even wrote about that idea recently in this blog post.
