Leadership doesn’t want us to think.
They wants us to be preoccupied by possessions, money, and status.
As long as we’re distracted, they can manipulate us in ways that benefit their hierarchy. If we think, they no longer get to be leaders.
To believe that the “higher-ups” care for the rest of us is naive hope, which we ultimately learn the painful way was misplaced hope.
I feel that lesson is going to become much more acute and clear in the coming months and years.
