Subject:Fred on Egypt
Time:03:43 pm

Фредушка наш высказался про Египет. Всё как обычно в пределах здравого смысла и поэтому скучновато (Экономист в общем пишет о том же, но без неполиткорректной язвительности). Центральный гэг при этом bears multiple unanticipated allusions, которых Фред конечно не имел в виду — просто я, как тот Вовочка, всё время о них думаю. О герметичных сообществах и принципе реальности. Регулярном проджект менеджменте там, уютненьком гетто, правлении аристократии по Адизесу etc.

…You have to understand that people are not born stupid. They have to work at it. When they come from similar backgrounds, and work in semi-isolated bureaucracies with distinct ideologies that don’t match how the world really works, you get bright, dedicated idiots. <…> Similarly, generals can’t win wars because they live in an imaginary world of martial ardor and excessive order that doesn’t correlate with Quang Tri or Helmand.
