Don't Fear The Inferior!
And best answered by the ancient legend of the infamous:
Stealing land at will, they
conquests into virtual slaves, controlling
every aspect of their lives. In a word,
they were the bosses, unquestioned,
feared, obeyed. But whats really
remarkable is how the Samarzees
pulled this off. For you see, everything
about the Samarzee army seemed
to be grander than anything seen before.
Humongous crotch covers evidently designed to protect.... how should we say... jumbo privates, the likes of which would leave even the most viral of bull water buffaloes feeling lacking.
This feeling of inferiority the Samarzees inflicted on the other tribes allowed them to totally dominate, to be the “big bosses” for generations.
To out-and-out “dictate”to their neighbors who they should answer to.
What he saw shocked him! Seeing them in the "Full Monty", he saw that the Samarzees werent awesomely endowed at all, rather far from what one would even call "adequate".
Their cod-pieces were really just ingeniously padded protrusions designed to give the illusion of "Great Things".
Before that day was out, the once feared Samarzees were overrun and wiped out by the masses they had so deviously manipulated for decades. The people vowing never again to be fooled by a bunch of "arrogant dorks".
the story shows, too often a boss
greatness is built on illusion. In the case of the poor tribes of the Philippines, they
feared their bosses because the Samarzee
made them feel inferior.
But also as the story shows, if you look closely enough, youll see that things are not always what they seem. Until the day cod-pieces come back into style, the facade of choice for todays Bosses is that of POWER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Power to hire and fire. Power to give orders. Power to control our lives and make it a living hell!
But, lets stop and look at this a moment.
Just what control do they really have?
Think about it. Their entire livelihood depends on the output of their workers. If you mess up -- its THEIR ass.
They can yell and intimidate and plead and bribe all they want. But in the end, they can not literally force you to do better (or worse, for that matter). So you see, you really have far more control than you ever imagined!
Think for a moment how pretty terrifying their life must be.
But they cant.
Sure they can fire you and get themselves another driver, but theyre never sure what theyre going to get. They could think theyre hiring Mario Andretti only to find, theyve hired Mr. Magoo. For them, its one big crap shoot. 24 hours a day. Every day of their life.
Now you see why beneath their totally exaggerated, over-inflated, Cod-piece of Power lies the biggest monster of them all:
And you thought YOU had the exclusive rights on that monster! Hey, your personal Tasmanian Devil is NOTHING compared to that gut-gnawing creature lurking behind those beady little eyes of that boss of yours.
So next time you let your boss drive you so crazy that you begin hallucinating that Swamp Thing is living in your local Sizzler Salad bar, dont forget that youre the one in the drivers seat.
YOU make things work!!
