The BBC Effect

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Videos such as this must kick off a few trains of thought, but to my mind one of them is the long-term trend towards the compulsory consumption of more and more government services. Maybe that should read “services”, but we could call it the BBC Effect.

Governments cannot hope to compete with the likes of Amazon in their service delivery so the choice is stark. Pull back government to its bare, deliverable essentials or make the consumption of government services effectively compulsory via a vast, pervasive network of patronage and dependency.

The BBC already has what may be a terminal problem now that everything it does is done better elsewhere. The UK government has similar problems with everything it does too. It is not only the NHS and and the coronavirus debacle.

In other words, totalitarian government may be an inevitable response to the scary levels of efficiency we see from free enterprise behemoths such as Amazon. If government services are not good enough, make them compulsory or very difficult to escape.
