When bad is on the rise, brave, decent, everyday people stand up and say no

In many organizations individuals often 'feel' something is wrong. Things gnaw away at the edge of their consciousness, unsettling and making little sense as they conflict with the agreed notions of what the organization is, what it holds dear and how it is believed to work....

The most important lesson thus far from the conduct of (the Australian) royal commission and the social pressure that prompted it is that always when bad is on the rise, brave, decent, everyday people stand up and say no — enough — no further.
