Workplace Parallels

I am listening to a Dean Koontz book on tape. At this point the sociopathic killer type has the philosophy of "it is the momentum that counts and not the consequences". He ponders to himself that a train hitting a bus full of people is only a tragedy if you take your eyes off of the train and instead focus on the resulting carnage. It is the journey of the train that is more important, or so thinks the killer. This strikes a parallel to the apparent philosophy of the "cost cutting consultants" that will be descending on our plant in a few weeks. Damn the bloodshed, all speed ahead on the bottom line savings. Sigh... this is part of human nature that we all embrace to some small degree, but it becomes very ugly when practiced at an institutional level.
