Perhaps I was a bit harsh when I criticised large organisations today. I can see that not everything was perfect in NASA in the 1960s. What I was trying to say was that we have gone too far in trying to make the decision making process objective. We need to be able to make personal decisions, use intuition, use personal persuasive powers. We need to take risks. Facts are very deceptive, very few 'facts' are actually objective. They are usually controlled by the person who made them
It does happen sometimes but it is more difficult when you work in a large organisation and there are lots of rules for everything.
Equality of course is a good thing but I would suspect it has lost some if its meaning because it has been overused.
