And the sentence "The revolution will not be community-approved." is the
most stupid thing I ever read.
When "the government" make significant changes, it has nothing in common

Theo, you argue process, I argue outcome.
They faced a problem, they tackled it, they made a decission. And their
mandate? They *showed up and volunteered*. That is enough mandate in my
