Re^4: Organizational Culture (Part I): Introduction -- prevaricationby bliako (Prior)

Well said. Points made apply to many more areas of life and work. I totally agree. And at least once in my life I did apply the "I am Human, I refuse to downgrade", so, I am proud I try to be Human.
But the total sum of the trajectory of average human is "the belly", food, substinence, economy. And that amounts to a force so strong that takes away even the strongest humanists or it breaks them. Are there any humanists among the daily commuters of the metro in New York (judging only by films, never been there)?
Economy is Capitalism today. But there are different stages to Capitalism although it has always been brutal to a varying number people although, sometimes, it balanced out with its positive effects, like driving economy and technology to a max. Today it is brutal to a maximum number of people.
OT: Are there alternatives? Yes, I claim that technology as it is today can drive and sustain an alternative economy, although I respect the point of view of those saying "it has been tried before", my point is that technology is an important, qualitative factor in this new endeavour. And so, I am all for the abolishment of Capitalist Economy, confident that the alternative will succeed.
Back to the point of "Codes of Conduct", they are embelishments to the brutality we feel all around us. And often distract from the real issues. Like for example, human labour exploitation, different opportunites depending on income and class, 2nd/3rd-world exploitation (vaccines and India is a case in point), unemployment (for those who feel the need to Create). It reminds me of the anti-bullying campaigns in schools which totally ignore that the majority of those kids are already hit by inequalities and later will be bullied within and by the Economy they are destined to serve.
The above issues have become central in my life when it fell in my hands a marxist pamphlet in a boring train ride. That's why I keep mentioning them here, mostly as "FYI" and definetely not as "Proselytism", in PM with every opportunity (and elsewhere), but I do sense that I am overstepping the mark, PM being a Perl-forum. Well, I can not stop and I think PM is not just a Perl-forum and Perl is not just a computer language.
