Problem

Idealism of opposition groups

Nature:
Loyal oppositions are unable to effectively challenge the status quo because of their inherent idealism. They simply cannot view issues from the perspective of the establishment: they have never had the opportunity or it has been a long time ago or they desire not to. While they articulate vague values and hopes about the future, they are unable to create a realistic operating vision of an alternative to existing policies. Frustrated by their lack of progress they revert to open rebellion, escape to a different situation or effectively surrender.
