We live in a period where everything is spin, where the truth is rarely told about public policy and where many public arguments are disingenuous. However, during the contemporary period, everything is confusion. Only when we look back are we able to see clearly how social reality was constructed.
This situation makes it very difficult for campaigners, or those trying to voice a dissenting view to Government or its agencies. While thirty years ago, it might have been possible to engage in a peripheral dialogue with government, today, government and its many agencies is a secretive, shadowy organisation which often invites campaigners to wrestle with phantoms. In contemporary society, there is, in short, no point at which the clear demands of the people might be put to government and a considered answer returned.
