The other factor which has eroded civil service neutrality is the new role imposed on the service by the requirements of development. Development imposes a multiple role on the public servant because what is intended is to emphasize the spirit of cooperation that should characterize the public service. Development requires that civil servants come out openly in support of government policies and even try to legitimize these policies to the public so that they will have a real chance of success. Political neutrality of public servants denies society the benefit of making full use of the few educated and enlightened people who are concentrated in the public services. Anonymity ceases to be a virtue and public servants, especially those in the upper echelons, are encouraged, indeed required, to come out of their protective shells and acquire conviction through active participation in politics. In fact, in some cases they are even required to assume a proselytizing role in the interest of recruiting the widest political support for the party and its ideology.
