American Corporate Stalinism
a: An american office manager ~
b: Soviet bureaucrat
What: "She didn't insist too much on what she was telling us, and it became clear she was in a position similar to that of a veteran Soviet bureaucrat who must work on two levels at once: reality and official ideology". This is a great essay that's more about working with your hands, but it makes some great points about the mindset of the contemporary American organizational style. Well worth reading.
