A C-suite idea to improve society

In American English, the “C-suite” refers to all the various head positions at a firm, named because they all have “Chief” in their tituls.

People who come on a public resource for use should feel that they are not required to exchange their dignity for the use of the place. Just the same, the desire is there. I don’t see a way out.
