It strikes me that there seems to be no sense of humor here. No joy de vive. Are we not cartoonists ? Two legs good ? BMWs bad? When humor is abandoned, so is hope. I'm not here to bash execs. I have no wish to become the evil thing that they have become. If we cannot even joke about some of this it is worse than being powerless. It is being beaten.
Martin Luther King knew that you cannot beat the enemy by becoming the enemy. You can only bring them with you. Hug them and love them till they know you (sound sick , doesn't it). Till they let go of their unreasonable fear and hatred. Our fear as well.
SnakeBiter is right. We must evolve. The question is if we will evolve into them or not. If that is what it means I'm leaving. I know enough execs and I'm not interested in watching you all turn into a mindless mob that hates before it thinks. Life is too short and I think I would rather watch it than be a part of it. I chose to go in a different direction. I would rather leave then have to become Darth Vader. Embrace hate if you want. It isn't for me.
