Failure is Success?

Prompted by “Unwilling to face reality, we just throw more money at it”: http://www.drugwarrant.com/2015/01/unwilling-to-face-reality-we-just-throw-more-money-at-it/

“The U.S. has to date provided $2.1 billion to Mexico to combat drug trafficking in the country under the Mérida Initiative – which is pejoratively known as ‘Plan Mexico.’ While the Initiative is loosely modeled after a similar effort in Colombia, many critics claim that it is doing more harm than good – citing as evidence the widespread corruption in Mexico’s civil police forces and a soaring murder rate since its implementation.”

“Hey, why change your approach when you’ve got one that’s failed so spectacularly for so many years?”

This is a nice and simple post for me, because the first commenter there nailed the answer…

“Failed?

There is no such thing as a persistent, failed policy. The status quo has a powerful constituency in whoever stands to benefit more than they would by reform.

I’m sure Mexico’s police don’t consider it a failure, nor, it seems, do Obama and Peña Nieto.

We’re just starting to prevail on the state level. I don’t think we’re organized and motivated enough to compete with national and international interests yet.”

Even during my pre-morning-coffee state of mind, I can see the nutshell brilliance in that answer.

I have so much more to say about that fundamental situation, but for now, I need to enjoy my morning caffeinated drug and then revise Stress Health website content relevant to that situation.

I'm an honest freak (or reasonably responsibly balanced "misfit", if you prefer) of an entertainer working and resting as my careful contribution to help improve society. Too many people abuse reasoning (e.g. 'partial truth = whole truth' scam), while I exercise reason to explore and express whole truth without any conflict-of-interest.
