Suppose a parliament that tries to
"outsource" their responsibility in various ways (they take the gains but not wanting to take the risks). Of course, the situation cannot last: risks and gains should have a correlation, here arbitrages are surreal. For some reason, this video here about point 0:50 came to my mind about the situation. Artificial obfuscation and complexity are intentional, I think to hide something evil. Which vocabulary or phrases would you use and when to describe this kind of situation that some parties are trying to make more obscure?
Issue requiring more descriptive phrases or vocabulary
A parliament may avoid responsibility in various ways such as
- does not underwrite official documents with signature or official stamp
- floods important documents with less important documents so the next parliament (particularly if it is opposition) cannot find them
- maintain the location to store and process important documents in an inferior quality so outsiders cannot realistically find there anything
- may censor public documents
- ...many other things
Most of the terms below have drawbacks. The
denial of responsibilitydoes not really grasp the reason -- the responsibility may be avoided so that controversial decisions can be made. Then again, it catches the intent where
denialinfers consciousness decision. The hard part is that decision-makers may just
"forget"things such as underwrite things or be lazy to process the documents or more evil i.e. totally intended denial of responsibility (outlined above).
