It took me a while.
Long enough to become ashamed of myself…
But I finally got it!
All those individuals are birds! In order to get there they had to fly!
In human terms they were free, nobody forced them to get in those relative positions.
If living in a democracy they even elected themselves to those places…
So what’s keeping them there?
Do they really enjoy it?
Are they afraid that if they leave, even temporarily, somebody else would take their places?
Have their wings became so stuck with shit that they are no longer able to take off?
Besides that, what kind of leader can find any satisfaction in presiding over such a filthy mess?
