The System

We often find ourselves running from the system.‚  The system creates for us an unbearable expression of authority, crying to be deconstructed and reconstructed.‚  To do so would require the approval of those who operate the system and thrive in its authority.‚  Deconstructing the system affects control.‚  When you have fought so long for control, you do not easily give it up.

I found this past week a flawed system.‚  It needs to be deconstructed and reconstructed.‚  Power and control need to b in the hands of those who live within the context of the system, not those who hardly interact within it.

Being a systems guy, a macro-leader, and a believer in complexity (or chaotic systems), if I were asked my opinion of how to deconstruct the system, an opinion would be offered.

    So, what are your thoughts?
