I've finally managed to turn this series into a pdf suitable for download (1.1mb).
I've adapted it a bit, rewrote some sections that worked in the medium of a blog but didn't quite translate to paper.
It's a bit of a slog but I hope you find the time to read through it. I hope it prompts some thinking.
I also think its an opportune time to discuss why we seem to be stuck in a cycle of corrupt leaders.
p.s. A friend complained about the colors bleeding her inkjet dry, so here's a black and white version (400kb).
