Imagine if PowerPoint had been invented before WW2. We’d have been fucking steamrolled so hard it’d be crazy. But today, the middle management disease has spread to the military. No wonder we’re having such a hard time in Afghanistan, they probably don’t have a bullet point in their language, nor words like leverage or paradigm or syngerize.
I’m increasingly convinced that in management meetings, without the grunts around, managers kick back and open their second mouths, swirling maws of crackling energies, and suck in bullet points like souls to nourish them. One day they’ll have infected us all.
