Bordering on chaos?

Dear Editor,

In this society of ours ministry buildings are going up in flames one after the other, vendors who have taken over the pavements can tell the authorities 'we are not movin', political activists make heroes of killers and bandits, protesters are encouraged to damage roads and bridges, boom box owners disturb the neighbourhood.

In this same society youths play ball on the street and verbally abuse those who tell them not to do so, an injured person goes to the emergency department at the hospital and waits hours to be seen by a doctor, youths ride their bicycles on the pavement and shout at the pedestrian to 'move out the way'.

Isn't this society bordering on chaos?

Yours faithfully,
W.P. George
