Anonymity: A Revolt of the Masses?


In the past (here and here) I've complained about the anonymity of modern politics, and I suspected that many people shared this concern with me.

Well, now I know that I'm not not the only one. Daniel Henninger of the Wall Street Journal thinks that the voting populations around the world are finally running out of patience for anonymous bureaucrats and irresponsible politicians putting our countries deeper and deeper in debt.

I'm not so sure that we're going to see a "revolt of the masses" any time soon, but hopefully the current financial crisis will inspire some people to reconsider the anonymity of modern politics.
