I know I do sometimes. What if I’m right?According to the newly released documentary the Corporation, it’s not your boss that’s crazy, it’s the company itself:

To more precisely assess the “personality” of the corporate “person,” a checklist is employed, using actual diagnostic criteria of the World Health Organization and the DSM-IV, the standard diagnostic tool of psychiatrists and psychologists. The operational principles of the corporation give it a highly anti-social “personality”: It is self-interested, inherently amoral, callous and deceitful; it breaches social and legal standards to get its way; it does not suffer from guilt, yet it can mimic the human qualities of empathy, caring and altruism. Four case studies, drawn from a universe of corporate activity, clearly demonstrate harm to workers, human health, animals and the biosphere. Concluding this point-by-point analysis, a disturbing diagnosis is delivered: the institutional embodiment of laissez-faire capitalism fully meets the diagnostic criteria of a “psychopath.”

    You’re kidding.

    This is exactly what I meant by saying that there are no conspiracies, just a bunch of lazy people doing part of a job without all the information.  Except where we work; it is your boss that’s crazy.
