Publication Type Web Article
Pub Year 2009

Keywords freedom, organizational totalitarianism
Notes organizational totalitarianism"But we spend eight to ten to twelve hours of our daily lives at work, where we have no say. I think when anthropologists dig us up 400 years from now--if we make it that far--they're going to say, 'Look at these people back then. They thought they were free. They called themselves a democracy, but they spent ten hours of every day in a totalitarian situation and they allowed the richest 1 percent to have more financial wealth than the bottom 95 percent combined.'

Truly they're going to laugh at us the way we laugh at people 150 years ago who put leeches on people's bodies to cure them."
