Open government biggest challenge is that we have been told not to trust government for 50 years. This constructed myth was started by William F. Buckley to protect both large business and Christianity from liberalism. This myth is now so deeply ingrained in many people's minds they react with visceral hate to tax funded anything. Buckley set up today's Amerca's white 45 year old men to commit. They feel that hopeless. They irrationally support a narcissist for President.
In Almonte west of Ottawa the community is working with Ottawa business to create a Centre of Thoughful Discourse knowing Buckley's lie has destroyed the middle class in Amerca.
