The dirty secret is there are a lot of people that want the economy to fail, having everyone else being miserable makes them happy.
Progressives are not about helping the poor. They are about destroying the successful, prosperous, productive. They are attempting to conform the world to their dark, empty, ugly souls.
John went on to explain, You are either right or you are wrong. If you are right and they are going to fail with their current approach, then you should be able to articulate where the design is going to fail. Use that to help them fail as quickly as possible so that they can learn the lesson and restart on the right path. You are saying that the design wont scale so make sure everyone agrees what the scale requirements are and then arrange to have them prove that their design can meet those goals ASAP (make it one of the first coding goals). One of two things are going to be the case: 1) it scales in which case youve learned something and it is a good thing that you didnt get them to change or 2) it doesnt scale in which case they are going to have to change their approach. At that point they might take your approach or they might pick another but one way or the other, it is going to meet the scalability requirement that weve all agreed to. That was a career-changing conversation for me. John was giving me my first lesson in our job is to engineer encounters with reality.
Shared misery for all.
Can’t wait till the BO taxes hit Hollywood.
