We have witnessed over the past three years and are now witnessing what some pundits refer to as a "crisis" of confidence in government. I am not inclined to be that dramatic. This is not to say that the tensions we are experiencing are not real. The reality of the events with which we are confronted belies our dream. Regretfully, our intuitive reaction to these tensions is emotional rather than one of critical analysis and constructive thought. Our basic problem is our way of life. Meditation, careful analysis and meticulous planning are but preludes to action. R.G.H. Siu suggests our normative role: "Even when you don't know what to do, do something."
