Drunk one eyed frogs — creative suggestion to editors of readers letters —

The majority of readers letters take the form of a complaint , some injust treatment or wrong  judgement of individuals ; most centre around a moral issue .  Problems caused by  untruths ; greed ; power or property ownership …

This format has not changed in 200 years ..   Is it not time to review ? It has been said that change can only come from men/ women who think differently …     Surely the editors of newspapers have more vision than    ……    ”   A  drunk  one eyed frog ?  ”

Why not admit letters of complaint ONLY  if they add a suggestion for a  the solution to the problem they are complaining about ?

For example many complaints are about improving public services  .few appreciate that what they ask for requires the funding of resource ,  governments  have a finite amount of money which is never enough .. Solve the problem of how to create enough money or stop complaining !
