I guess they are not making war, but if what you describe is the case, it sounds like they aren’t making sense either.

In British Columbia where I live, politicians made the good decision to “deinstitutionalize” mentally ill and developmentally challenged people who had been effectively warehoused-for-life. They made the bad decision to not transfer the savings to adequate community-based services.

These kind of decisions require foresight and long term planning. But that necessity does not excuse the continued squandering of public resources on policies that have proven to be ineffective and costly for generations.
