Back to the most basic, fundamental human question, so can there exist a company/group of people without a bosshole power tripping all over the place on top of the pyramid schematic? Yes, a coexisting community of people with equal power/neutrality and say is fundamentally possible but is very rare. You definitely won't be seeing too many companies out there here in the USA, but they do exist in more city places. A good example of somewhere that remains neutral as possible maybe something more European like Switzerland. So things probably have not changed since forever. There have also been feuds over well, just about everything imaginable between two people, like children fighting over a toy. Expect to see and follow a lot of rules, regulations, laws, codes, licensing, tests, quality control, someone hovering over your shoulder, Q/A, etc. People who just don't give a f*ck, either become homeless or get placed somewhere in an adult home/shelter. A lot of us just don't blatantly care about someone else's rules and regulations until something happens, until someone tries to enforce them upon us.
Congratulations! You are now a stiff! You are forbidden from doing anything but work 24/7. I guess that's the meaning of "work" in America. A lot of people find themselves in the same boat. There's no way out unless you continue to work or drop dead. That is exactly what happens to some of the retirees that have been overly conditioned to work like a stiff 24/7. Guess what they do soon after retirement? They drop dead.
Ultimately, the universe is about balance and duality. There is a time to work, there is a time to not a give a crap, there is a time for leisure, there is a time for vacation, there is time to do whatever, there is a time for family, there is a time for fun, there is a time for pain, there's a time to pay the bills, there is time for birth/death, etc. Yes, having to work pisses us all off, especially how it is structured but for now that is all we got. That bosshole that you hate is keeping the company alive, which in return allows you to have a job, which ultimately leads to your biweekly paycheck. Seldom does anyone just win the lottery and get away without having to live some kind of hellish life style dictated by some asshole on top. It takes a special kind of asshole to be a boss. Management, business, dealing with customers, and politics is just not for everyone. I don't expect someone like myself to be a manager or director of an already established company. I wouldn't even do it if they paid me more, because then I would just be paying more taxes and having to work even harder. The amount of hell they put you through with all the rules and laws to follow is just not worth it for me.
In summary, here's a short list of functioning things you can do in this life:
- Be a homeless and not care
- Have a 9-5 rat race job; go home; not care until it all starts over again tomorrow morning
- Graduate from being a 9-5 rat racer and be a 24/7 bosshole/manager of the company
- Retire and drop dead
Thank you for stopping by and reading my most inner and private of thoughts! Just don't tell your boss or he'll "fire me". Like I would care anyways. I'd be thankful collecting unemployment for the next 6 months. I appreciate your company though. See you next time!
