 Beware the leaders. Distrust the structures. Scrutinise the social workers. Protect yourself from the police. Keep your boundaries with councillors, MP's, judges, clerics, teachers and the like. No one entrusted with power can be assumed safe. They hold contaminating material that can disrupt even the noblest of minds. Remain sceptical at enquiries, reviews, commissions and reports. The great and the good are a privileged bunch, toadying in the corridors of power, watching each other's backs, calling in favours and toasting one another at dinners. We may need the aforementioned, but only with our wits about us, launching our own investigations and maintaining our safety at all times. CCTV or record everything. Give the authorities not an inch of advantage.
