Oh, isn't feudalism beautiful? In such a system, the people at fault can always reap the rewards of position, while asking those who work for them to do impossible tasks without adequate resources. And deny them those resources for years, even when told again and again what is needed to do the job right. Even evidence of these warnings seems no defense.
Then, if something happens, they fire those who work for them and flay them in the court of public opinion. Nothing is learned. The next group of workers steps up to do an impossible task without adequate resources, but the good times roll on for those at the top.
Local. Politics. Matter.
