A frightening amount of organisational decision making is based on this:
My decisions are superior to yours because once someone drew boxes connected by lines and put boxes above your box.
I'm in one of those boxes.
I know more than you because I'm Up Here.
If anyone doesn't like the decision from your box they can ESCALATE it up to me in mine and I can change it.
Reason: My box is higher than yours.
I may give you the benefit of my descriptions of my view from Up Here if I get the time.
Like bread tossed from the back of a moving UNHCR truck.
