    How amazing that any civil society organisation ever thought that government COULD solve all our problems! The very point of a civil society organisation is the bringing of people together to meet mutual needs or to solve mutual problems. Something very radically wrong has occurred in the last thirty years whereby the leadership and management of civil society organisations has been captured by outsourced public sector officials, who have brought their public sector identity and way of thinking into civil society. This has been a stunning development that has attracted remarkably little critical scrutiny or discussion – in part because the scale and character of the takeover has been so comprehensive and so self-justifying that most people in civil society have been stunned by the process and rendered helpless by it.

    But after thirty years, it’s now time for civil society to fight back.
