Anchoring power to ethics is a tall order
Accommodating maximum participants in cultural programs put up by schools is a common phenomenon. Proliferation of civil society organizations, also, is indicative of rewarding more and more people with positions of power or recognition. The Democracy machinery, similarly, employs too many people. Election campaigns and the media vigil multiply it manifold. Thus, while this participatory nature is a welcome feature, wide asymmetry in incentives and risk of rejection make it a virtual minefield.
