The Washington Monument Theory

“Explain the Washington Monument Theory”

The Washington Monument Theory goes a little something like this. The government is going through a crisis and need to do some budget cuts. Tours to the Washington Monument are a big deal, but the small fountain show downtown isn’t. You’d think they would cut the fountain show wouldn’t you? Nope, they cut the Monument Tours. That outrages the public. They start rallying around trying to get them to open up the tours again. And that is exactly what the government had planned they would do. The government is the ”parent” and we are the ”toddlers” and the ”parent” knows that if they take away our favorite toy, we’ll throw a very large”tantrum”.
