Complexity assailing our Communities
Complexity in the form of Wicked Problems or Challenges is one of the major afflictions facing our communities. This Causal Loop Diagram is intended to demonstrate how a system of community governance could go off track resulting in a municipal government which maintains power despite not meeting the needs or desires of most its constituents. It also demonstrates the difficulty in communicating this to the average community member as the system is not designed for clear communications. The community member has difficulty in getting a clear picture of the system and even has even greater difficulty in seeing any resolution.
