In its campaign to collect unpaid bills, the Breshna Company cut off electricity to some powerful and high-ranking government officials in an unprecedented move.

Being in government and being powerful does not give license to free use of public utilities, or to put oneself above the law.
How can we be responsible citizens in our communities and in our country?
