The concentration of power in the hands of a select few often results in corruption and censorship. An example of this occurring is depicted in the dystopian novel Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, in which satire is utilized to present a utopia dictated by a totalitarian government, universal happiness and extreme technological advancements. Set in London decades into the future, life is scientifically balanced, efficiently controlled, and allows for no personal emotions or individual responses. Citizens are strongly discouraged to speak out against the status quo and are threatened with being exiled. Similarly, in society today, and especially on the Internet, dissenting opinions are strongly frowned upon and discouraged.
With his op-ed piece “Generation X-the weakest generation?” published in the Washington Post, the political opinion writer Dana Milbank asks a question: is the generation he hails from the weakest in terms of accomplishments? As Milbank states in his piece, “We grew up soft: unthreatened, unchallenged and uninspired. We lacked a cause greater than self,”. Milbank, having written about politics in society for many years, is known for giving readers his own views on the political atmosphere through “characterizing political debate as consisting of two unreasonable poles” his “habitual and inflexible” posture on certain issues and by viewing himself “as a truth-teller caught in the middle” (“Greg Marx”). This op-ed piece continues his tradition

In the same workplaces there are of course those that support the ruling party, what now for them? Obviously there will be misunderstandings because now the Workers Union has taken sides in politics. This would make one to question whether democracy can be achieved if politics and administration keep clashing? Furthermore, during elections here in Botswana we see the ruling party using Kgotlas as their way of campaigning as they know that not everyone supports their party.
