I'm just following this article on the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, because they are a perfect example of a political self-similar hive, much like certain nuclear organizations. With such an organization, there will be nobody that stands out in a crisis.
They are attempting to solve this by going outside with a panel. Will this be a good panel? Will it help break up the hive? I don't know, but I suspect it will be a meek panel, directly dependent on the peacetime generals for their daily bread, much like certain nuclear panels.
