A Conventional Analysis of Why Parasites Are Parasitic

"The causes of [bureaucratic failure] have proven quite resistant to conventional analysis, but there is one thread running through all the social pathologies: Failure of Feedback."


You have an employee you can't fire and who sets their own wage.
How much money do you expect to spend on them, and how much useful work do you expect to get out? 

Apparently these two lines constitute transcendent genius that an entire civilization cannot fathom. 

Naturally, in reality, a bunch of parasites were tasked with finding out why parasitism causes pathology. "How do we stop parasites from sucking blood?" It is not surprising that they couldn't come up with anything even remotely convincing, given that anything remotely accurate shows they can all be fired without thinking about it.

This is good, reclarified some things to me.

A correction: Once a mandate has been obtained - then they can be fired without thinking.

To be precise, I mean they can be fired without hassle because firing them has no negative effects. Wealth = wealth++. Pure Pareto optimization. They are already outgroup, firing them merely acknowledges this.

Only if the Casus Belli (of harm) is of the present can one do this safely (ie without triggering harm).

You can still list out all the bad deed done in the past, but they do not make a casus belli.

This is how the world works. See, Floyd etc.
