    What is it that drives interested and informed property owners crazy with migraines of rage?  To begin with, during 2008 through 2010 particularly,  the HOA boards held the position of ignoring all oversight and requests from member owners that the board act according to the prescribed HOA Bylaws. To any person or group with any pride, being ignored is often worse than out-and-out hate;  it’s much more of an insult that you’re not even worth being noticed.  Or worse, that you deserve to be left out of the neighborhood conversation even if you were elected by an overwhelming majority of the property owners.  That is just the insult.  Then there’s the injury itself.  The entrenched usurping board members disdain and ignore us, property owners, because they feel– and they are not wrong — that it is within our power to do so much better and so much more than they are willing to do.   The surrounding injured and disenfranchised property owners have done very little to rectify this neighborhood situation because upon reaching their anonymous comfort level, they seem to feel it is easier to write a 200% increase check for $462 that they had no part in establishing and for which they will receive little or no benefit.  The check is easier to write than it is to take action to protect their rights or their voice against rules and actions made without their participation. There are owners who still have continued to The Master HOA is a lake owner organization of elected and non-elected participants who run the MHOA without adherence to established charter rules. The decisions they make in our small and large pond neighborhood has a ripple effect that wrongly affects us all, our property rights, our equality, and our wallets.  Allowing the Master HOA board to purloin our money for lake expenses and their attorney’s fees for amenities we have been restricted from using is negligent, and impinges on all our rights.  This abdication handcuffs our ability to share equally that which is purported to be “Common Area Amenities. “People are funny about warnings and precautions. Oversight takes work and time.  Warnings can be imposing and require action –“who needs that hassle?”  People are too self absorbed and distracted to properly discriminate between danger likely to strike and red herrings.  The brave Argentinean author Jacobo Timerman once said, “It is very easy to hate a Nazi, a guardian in a Gulag.  But the real danger is not them.  It is the “decent” people who compromise with complacency and evil.”   Eric Hoffer said, “The mystery of our time is the inability of “decent” people to get angry.”  Have we so banally accepted sadness and anonymity as much safer havens? There is a problem with involvement and free speech in our neighborhood. We’ve given away so many of our rights voluntarily to avoid being bullied, and through the enforced appropriateness of  “political correctness”, that when a usurper says, “ignore her or him, watch what you say, don’t listen to facts or quotes from our legal documents”, you think, “So what?! Heck, watching our step, staying out of the fray, that’s what life in the suburbs is like anyway, if you set your time priorities on earning an income and raising your family, if you want to be safe and neutral, if you want to be non-confrontational then don’t learn the facts, don’t take a stand.  “We need to begin the fight on a local level for what are our basic rights because people who get in trouble or are ostracized for what they say, they  aren’t necessarily wrong.  Athenians made Socrates drink the hemlock, but not because his warnings were mistaken;  it was because he was right, and they hated him for it.  The problem in this Silver Springs Community is not too much speaking out, it’s too little speaking out.  We need raw honesty and transparent process.   So far only a handful have shown the gumption to make their concerns openly known.  Where do you stand?
