The issue of 'ownership' of decisions and little binary decisions on 
votes is a way of dancing around the real issue of directed action and 

On another note, if as you continue into the future and continue living 
you find yourself having to answer an increasingly larger number of 
checkbox thingies to cast your vote, to make sure nothing screws up, 
and indeed if you don't do so everything /does/ screw up, then I think 
you're doing it wrong. There are general constraints and rules to 
growth to work with, otherwise we're all damned methinks.
