New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 88 Compliance can be extracted by tyrants from a population through a straightforward method of creating enmity between segments of the population. First, the population is split into those who comply with the tyrant’s programs and policies and those who do not comply. If there are enough among the compliant, a demonization campaign we should call “hatecraft” is employed to pressure those dragging their feet to comply and to demonize those who refuse compliance. Perhaps no one in history was more skilled at these techniques, the politics of compliance, than Mao Zedong in CCP-controlled China. In this

All Marxism is cult religious. All Marxist “theory” begins by believing it uniquely knows what human beings really are (socio-spiritual beings), into what they have been thrown (a mundane world of property ownership, imposed identity, and suffering through scarcity), and to what we must return (a truly social society that transcends individualism). Because Marxists fundamentally believe they know the true and secret socio-spiritual nature of humans whereas (demonic, Demiurgic) social forces have conditioned everyone else not to know them, they feel uniquely entitled to power for the purpose of remaking man into who he is. This explains most of their

Enlivening Edge Magazine Editori’s Note: Here’s a nice mental stretch into these nuanced alternative perspectives, different from the common views “All sensible reasonable people want to be Teal” or “Everyone wants to have more power at work.” By Charlie Efford and originally published on LinkedIn How often you read a pronouncement that someone’s mission/passion is empowering other people? These statements may spring from a desire to help others and I feel there are some fundamental flaws in the intention. Imagine having a room with two light bulbs on the ceiling. One is a bright 100W bulb and the other a

Overall, this management philosophy has a lot to offer but one of the things that bugs me the most about it is how it inadvertently implies there’s no longer a place for leadership. Some of the other mistruths around self-management are: You should now be able to resolve all of your own barriers and challenges, effectively working in isolation Self-Management itself will resolve all your business challenges The skills and qualities of your brightest leaders should be

By Brent Lowe and originally published at leadtogether.co Power is woven through all our relationships, shaping our interactions and permeating our organizations. Rarely, however, do we acknowledge it. It’s easy to have good intentions and still build an organization full of powerless people. Power is an emotive issue in organizations. Individuals who feel disempowered experience frustration and resentment, while those with power often struggle to manage their positional authority. Today, the structures that have traditionally shaped power dynamics in organizations are being challenged by new models of leadership. But what are these emerging forms of leadership? And how do they

This introduction is from the January 2023 newsletter of the Teal Team and the article is published by Larissa Conte of Wayfinding, Inc. Introduction by the Teal Team: The concept of power lies at the heart of Teal: discovering the power of purpose, seizing your personal power, and learning to share power humbly with others. But we’re not good at talking about power, not comfortable with openly acknowledging it. Naming and acknowledging 30 different types of power at work helps us understand that our individual combination of powers are unique, power is manifest and exercised in multiple ways, and that
