A nation's mind

Every nation must justify the way in which it handles things,
and it does so by stressing the importance of some aspect
under which it can believe its management to be superior.

Long before the historical consequences
of a failure of government policy manifest themselves
its logical consequences emerge under this aspect
and threaten the nation's belief in its ways
up to the point where it starts to look to the outside for answers.
