So, is there a failure of justice? if there were sufficient transparency, we would be able to judge with confidence. Even that deficiency is dishonesty and a failure of justice, isn't it?

If people voted for politicans like the US Senator in the Abscam scandal who refused a bribe, maybe there would be more transparency. (Compare the politician who introduced the legislation forcing the US military to buy $17k drip pans when a competitor offers them for $2.5k.)

Some people might assume that we have to work around the stupidity of the average voter, but I disagree. One of the main arguments concerning work conservation is that conflicting goals cause people to think more critically.

There is also evidence that problems like unemployment cause people to ignore other issues like global warming. So work conservation, by fixing unemployment, would allow people to vote more intelligently on other issues.
