Why do you think so?  I’m always surprised by this question.  Then again, isn’t this what’s interesting about it?  What have we done such that world-making, which is really what government is, has become boring?  Part of the problem, I think, is in treating policy as a thing, not a process or practice, a human activity.  We talk too much about this inert, abstracted thing, and too little about what people are doing – and thinking, and talking about – when they are doing government.
