A FEW THOUGHTS:
>POSITIVE 'OUTCOME' OR 'RESULT' OF ANY OR ALL SUCH attempts,IT IS IN ONE'S CONVICTION,BASED ON WISDOM GATHERED IN HINDSIGHT (FROM THE PAST),for self-speaking / obvious reasons, EVENTUALLY RESTS MAINLY , RATHER WHOLLY, WITH THE, AND ONLY WITH THE, -
1) CORPORATIONS;
2) THE EMPOWERED AUTHORITIES SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR MAKING THE LAW, FURTHER FOR ITS IMPLEMENTATION, AND ENFORCEMENT;
3) LAST BUT NOT THE LEAST, ON THE SOCIETY ITSELF.
THAT IS GOING TO INVARIABLY BE DEPENDENT ON - THE REAL SCOPE FOR / THE EXTENT TO WHICH ALL CONCERNED IN THE SOCIETY UNDERSTAND AND ASSIMILATE, ALSO MAKE IT A POINT TO TRY AND SEE TO IT THAT THE AUTHORITIES DO NOT SHOW ANY LAXITY OR INDIFFERENCE IN THE IMPLEMENTATION AND ENFORCEMENT OF THE LAW , BOTH IN LETTER AND SPIRIT.
TO BE PRECISE, ALL SUCH ATTEMPTS SIMPLY AIM AT / DO SEEM TO HAVE THE SAME/LIKE OBJECTIVE AKIN TO THAT OF AN ATTEMPT AT,-
TAKING AN ANIMAL (BY ONE WHO HAS VESTED INTERESTS ,-IN THIS CONTEXT, THE STAKE HOLDERS COMMUNITY-, HENCE CARES FOR IT) TO WATER OR FODDER. BUT THE DECISION TO OR NOT TO DRINK OR BITE OFF AND CHEW. ENTIRELY RESTS WITH THE ANIMAL. THAT IS POSSIBLE PROVIDED THE ANIMAL ITSELF REALIZES WHY IT SHOULD DO SO ; FURTHER, WHAT IS THE DIRE CONSEQUENCE IF IT FAILS TO DO SO.
If viewed in that light, one sadly feels miserable, having been LET DOWN, BEING stuck up with an inescapable puzzle: ARE WE THEN TALKING OF SOMETHING NEXT TO 'IMPOSSIBILITY' - akin to that of an attempt TO REACH THE HORIZON?

NOW,BEING LEFT WITH NO BETTER ALTERNATIVE,- OVER TO 'EXPERTS' (including,- psycho analysts,- specializing in study and understanding of -'social behavior') with an earnest appeal to attempt at finding a TRUTHFUL /SOULFUL answer!
