Way back in the 80's some idiot executive came up with the idea that if he surrounded himself with the dumbest people he could find, he would look smart. I even saw this theory in practice while I was in the military. What really happened is that they looked like they had surrounded themselves with really stupid people. Somehow, these people figured this would help them get ahead.
"My staff can't get along without me."
I guess that's an acceptable substitute for hard work in our society. Then, they decided that the next best thing was to finger point. That seems to still be going on now. If you screw up, you just blame someone else for something else. Point at them and accuse them and push the blame away from yourself.
"Were you the one who caused the fire back in the break room?"
"Maybe, but you need to take a look at Melvin, he's not putting the recyclables in the right can! How about that?"
And things seem to be getting worse. People will do anything now to get money, or to get ahead. I'm seeing things in the news about people claiming their spouse, or kids have some kind of incurable disease and then take donations. Then it turns out the spouse, or kids were fine, and were never sick in the first place. Why the hell would you do this? Are these people really that desperate for money?
