Autocratic Automation

Attending meetings regarding the automation of lightstations, I noted the Bureaucrats politely acknowledged the objections to destaffing, but there was always a presence of fait accompli no matter what the repeated Arguments were for preservation of manned Lighthouses.

The cool colours of the clouds and water represent the Bureaucrats.

The hot red colour of beacons and roofs, represent the Arguments.

THE DESTAFFING OF LIGHTHOUSES IS TEMPORARILY ON HOLD
IT IS ANTICIPATED THIS WILL CONTINUE IN THE NEW MILLENIA.
IN THE PAST 10 YEARS THERE HAS BEEN NUMEROUS STATIONS AUTOMATED.
