“Soft despotism is a term coined by Alexis de Tocqueville describing the state into which a country overrun by "a network of small complicated rules" might degrade. Soft despotism is different from despotism (also called 'hard despotism') in the sense that it is not obvious to the people."
In all fairness, it took a governmental solution and decision to decide to get out of the way and let people do what would come naturally to make their own individual and responsible decisions.ReplyDelete
If you think about it, often during a power failure, intersections work far better and what is more exasperating than coming up to a series of traffic lights at three in the morning and waiting for nothing?ReplyDelete
Looks a little confusing at first, but seems to work well. I noticed someone said something about it needing some 'courtesy and kindness'. Would it work in the USA? In Seattle, Los Angeles? Ohio? It might be harder to determine who was at fault in an accident. But, it does seem to work. And there is not the blizzard of signs I have seen in most normal traffic circles. I like it.ReplyDelete
