CBD Politics = Sausage

Laws are like sausages, it is better not to see them being made.” – Otto von Bismarck

From Mr. Kenzi Riboulet-Zemouli on the machinations around the CBD vote yesterday U.N. vote on CBD: seeing through the smokescreen of confusions.

Politics is the art of the next best

von Bismarck elaborates:

Initial ingredients:
Laws=beginning ideas and first bill drafts
Sausage=raw ingredients

Mixing process:
Laws=Committee hearing process,input from public, debate, amendments
Sausage=spices, additives, fillers

Grinding process:
Laws=floor debate and action, sometimes messy process
Sausage=all final ingredients mixed together

Finished product:
Laws=something that won’t make everyone 100% satisfied (it’s called compromise)
Sausage=something that not everyone will enjoy, but will still sell
