Time to stop being crash test dummies
As passengers on a global bus, we seem to be content to let anyone of us who chooses to do so go up there and take the steering wheel. Whether it is a Putin, a Trump, a Xi, a Musk or even a Kim, we just let anyone who wants a go at the wheel have a drive. Or have a squabble at the drivers seat, if they want to - that seems to be fine by us also. As the passengers, we do have the power to choose a cohort of the best qualified to drive our bus. So, why do we not exercise that power? Why do we keep leaving our security to anyone who wants to get up there and have a drive? Who are the dummies?
