"All government officials," Melith explained, "wear the badge of office, which contains a traditional amount of tessium, an explosive you may have heard of. The charge is radio-controlled from the Citizens Booth. Any citizen has access to the Booth, for the purpose of expressing his disapproval of the government." Melith sighed. "This will go down as a permanent black mark against poor Borg's record."
"You let the people express their disapproval by blowing up officials?" Goodman croaked, appalled.
"It's the only way that means anything," said Melith "Check and balance. Just as the people are in our hands, so we are in the people's hands.".
