Inaccessible decision makers

Insufficient communication between decision-makers and grassroots
There is insufficient communication between the grassroots and policy makers, local individuals and groups being unable to pass information to established powers or receive it back. The inaccessibility of decision-makers and the time required for letter-writing and petitions both point to the inadequacy of existing channels to meet present-day needs. The result is a lack of the on-going common basis necessary for consensus. Without accountability for continuous exchange of information, long-range planning becomes warped and misdirected.
