there is something about the corporate mind that, once greenery gets in, common sense drains out. It is almost as if the two concepts cannot co-exist.
I believe that a big part of the problem lies in the fact that nowadays to be in a 'management' position one needs a degree from a university aka indoctrination centre. Experience has over the past few decades been given less and less importance. In my work (IT) I have seen people with 20 years experience being shoved aside in favour of an adolescent with a degree - even if it was in some exotic subject totally unrelated to the core nature of the work.
How can one learn management from a university??
The amount of idiots i have to put up with has increased in equal proportion to the amount of graduates being churned out like cheesecakes... a product in itself of falling standards across the board.
We should go back to the Roman system - where you get different offices of public service with age - the cursus honorum
, or the course of honors. Generally, one would start at the bottom of the course, with a junior magistracy, and gradually rise through the ranks to the chief magistracy of consul.
Quaestor: The minimum age was 31.
Aedile: minimum age 37
Praetor: The minimum age requirement was 40 years old.
Consul: There was a minimum age requirement of 43.
what we're getting instead is "the infantalisation of society"....
