Viva La Resistance!

The knowledge, or presumption, that I’ll be somewhere else doing something else after a year and ten months of service makes it impossible for me to be as committed to the organization and its ethos as what is implicitly being demanded of me. At some point, what I am being told about values and responsibility and norming and alignment just becomes:

Link is external.

Link is external.

The combination of unusually chilly air conditioning and the unremitting emphasis on select ideas while keeping the audience a captive one every day for a week, eight hours a day, hardly seems innocent. The benefit of the doubt is given, but I also want to make a statement of intent: I resist!

*

Seriously, though, I can accept much of what has been painstakingly explained to me (sometimes in a voice that sounds sick of what is being said, or in a knowing and subtly condescending tone), but only up to a point. I have other convictions, and I am hardly an empty vessel waiting to be filled. That said, I am convicted that I should do my level best in my appointment, but I do not believe I am in the business of mass production. (Or fulfilling quotas early.)
