The New Virtual Organization World
As I have postulated and articulated in thousands of comments, articles, papers, treatises and other documents over these years, in the absence of such awakening, One Day We Will All Find Ourselves in the fatal situation of being in the final stages of a boiling frog.
Of course, the reason that my calls went unheeded - back then and even today, this very minute and second - is because people are so busy slaving away in order to try to make ends meet so they can feed and care for themselves and their families that they have very little time left at the end of the day to understand and realize the urgency of it all.
The smoke-and-mirrors appearance of tranquility, safety and security, individual freedom, democratic governance, success, full employment, economic prosperity and false sense of climbing up the ladder of success and power; combined with their naivete, apathy, blind obedience, ignorance, willful ignorance, and stupidity; made them prime candidates to believe that my messages were alarmist at best, and thus undeserving of any serious consideration.
- Tens of Million of employees out of work overnight without any sort of advance warning, and their lives completely shattered;
- A Roaring Stock Market which shows no signs of abating while millions are left homeless or unable to pay their rent or mortgage and relying on government assistance, subsistence, largesse or edicts to forestall their eviction;
- Tens of Million of college students living under traumatizing conditions that no one could have ever predicted;
- Tens of Million of college graduates with nil to none opportunity of ever being able to obtain gainful employment in their chosen profession;
- Tens of Million of new college students (The Class of 2024) who are faced with the prospect of incurring college tuition debts and campus dormitory expenses for what can only amount to be a "Hellish" and "Insane Asylum" experience in a Dystopian Environment and Totalitarian State;
- Hundreds of Million of pre-school, kindergarten, elementary, and high school students growing up to realize they are NOT the Only Ones who need a Mommy and Daddy to Provide for Them, Care for Them, Love Them, and Keep Them Safe - and who need to Do Their Part (listen to and obey Mommy and Daddy's advice and orders because it's good for them and only Mommy and Daddy know what's best for them) or else Mommy and Daddy will have no choice but to Shame Them, Scold Them, Strip Them of their privileges, Give Them some Time-Out, Send Them to their room or Lock Them in a closet, Whip Them if they get too belligerent, Get Them Scared Straight, and push comes to shove, Send Them to a juvenile home. They just found out that Their Mommy and Daddy are in the very same situation that they are in;
- And nearly 7 Billion people subject to unnecessary lockdowns, a constant and never ending bombardment and stream of the most extreme and sophisticated form of psyops and level of propaganda ever employed in the history of mankind against a global population, the wearing of ridiculous masks, and moronic social distancing, along with hundreds of other restrictions and mandates designed To Keep Us Safe, To Save Our Lives, and To Help Us Do Our Part and Flatten the Curve!
Collaboration In a Nutshell
Since I have already written quite a great deal of material on Collaboration, I am NOT going to waste any more time here writing on this subject. Instead, for those who are not lazy and mentally challenged, let me point you to four (4) awesome examples of Collaboration I can think of: Example #1 :: Example #2 :: Example #3 :: Example #4
The bottom line is this: Collaboration is all about 1) Sharing A Cause, 2) Being Completely Independent, 3) Doing What You Can Do, 4) Giving What You Can Afford to Give without being compelled or mandated to do so, and 5) Moving On.
In the absence of any single one of these five (5) components, you have Cooperation - a parasitic or master-slave-moron relationship.
In Other Words, with respect to
- Component #1. If you join an organization, or associate with others, primarily or strictly on the basis of compensation and certain benefits to be derived, instead of a Cause that you have in common, then you are engaged in a parasitic relationship.
- Component #2. If you join an organization, or associate with others, without the Independence, freedom and ability to contribute as you see fit; regardless as to whether or not your contribution is accepted, welcomed, appreciated, or compensated; then you are engaged in both a parasitic and master-slave-moron relationship.
- Component #3. If you join an organization, or associate with others, and You Are Unable to Do What You Claim That You Can Do - Or your performance is based strictly or primarily on compensation instead of willingly doing What You Can Do - then you are engaged in both a parasitic and master-slave-moron relationship.
- Component #4. If you join an organization, or associate with others, and You Are Unable to Give What You Claim That You Can Afford to Give - or Refuse to Give What You Claim That You Can Afford to Give - or are Compelled or Mandated To Give in any way, shape or form, then you are engaged in a parasitic relationship.
- Component #5. If you join an organization, or associate with others, and You Are Unable to Move On once the usefulness of your talents and efforts is no longer an imperative (i.e., once there are now 100's to 1000's of others out there in the marketplace who can pick up where you leave off), then you are engaged in a parasitic relationship.
Principled Leadership In a Nutshell
Since I have also written quite a great deal on Principled Leadership, let me just point you to the three (3) best examples of Principled Leadership I can think of: Example #1 :: Example #2 :: Example #3
The bottom line is this: Principled Leadership is all about Principled Leaders who: 1) subscribe to the universal a priori ethical code of "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you," 2) are only able to Lead themselves and have absolutely no desire to lead others, 3) are only willing to Collaborate with other Principled Leaders on a co-equal basis, and last but not least, 4) eschew all forms of hierarchical (slave-master-moron) relationships.
In the absence of any single one of these four (4) components, what you have can only be properly described as the typical Employer-Employee, Leader-Mindless Follower, Slave-Master-Moron, Influencer-Sycophant, Royalty-Inferior Subject, Strong-Weak, Bully-Coward, Cunning Psychopath-Truly Gullible, Demagogue-Moron, Cult Leader-Imbecile Follower, Ideologue-Mindless Zombie, Predator-Prey, and Might Is Right forms of Leadership.
In fact, these are the only forms of Leadership that mankind has ever known or experienced.
That means, as it stands today, other than at a VOMI-related entity, you will NOT be able to find any organization or institution in the world which practices Principled Leadership.
How Collaboration and Principled Leadership Makes a Difference
In a world or society where Collaboration and Principled Leadership are understood, adopted and practiced,
- We would no longer have "employers" and "employees." These terms would be considered "denigrating." Instead we would only have "Collaborators" who do NOT depend on anyone or any organization or institution in order to satisfy their needs.
- No single individual would ever have to worry about being laid off or terminated by an "employer."
- The idea of a Stock Market would become a very primitive and obsolete concept for the simple reason that Disproportionate Wealth for a few would no longer be generated from any Equity Market. There would be much more lucrative opportunities for every single Collaborator to generate an immense amount of wealth. That means, the "wealth gap" and being homeless or unable to pay your rent or mortgage and relying on government assistance, subsistence, largesse or edicts to forestall your eviction would be considered very primitive, archaic circumstances and relics of the past.
- The notion that Academics, who are supposed to be "Enlightened" and entrusted with the solemn responsibility of cultivating society's young and fertile minds, would cower in fear like a bunch of frightened animals and go along with the mandates of a bunch of Political Mobsters, Technocrats, Demagogues, Tyrants, Psychopaths, Sociopaths, Fake Scientists, and PsyOps Professionals without even a whimper of protest and discontent is not only unfathomable but also could never be a possibility. That means we would never have to worry about the sort of traumatization that today's college students are experiencing.
- Every single college graduate would be inundated with an avalanche of opportunities to Collaborate immediately upon graduation.
- New College Students (the incoming class) would never be faced with the sort of nightmarish, dystopian, and totalitarian world on a College Campus that today's Class of 2024 is faced with. No College Administrator in their right mind would ever allow something like that to happen on their watch regardless of the dictates of the State or any local government. No Parent would ever succumb to such idiocies. No Student would ever agree to such learning environment and living conditions.
- No Parent would ever allow the State to dictate to them when, where, how and by whom their minor children can be educated. That means the sort of dystopian reality that today's children are confronted with would be nothing but a "nightmarish past" and "distant memory."
- The idea that 7 billion people across the globe could be subject to "lockdown mandates, restrictions and orders" by the State or any other power or entity is not only an absolute impossibility but is also something that could never be uttered seriously or in jest, in private or public, to anyone by any sane member of the executive, legislative and judicial branch of government anywhere in the world.
In fact, prior to this so-called pandemic, I never thought even in my wildest dreams that the American people could be so gullible, easily manipulated, cowardly, and weak to go along with such diabolical scheme. So much for the myth about Land of the Free and Home of the Brave!
How You Can Make the Transition From Employee or Stakeholder to Collaborator
Regardless of your current station in life (e.g., Religious Leader, Royalty, Head of State, Military Leader, Political Leader, Legislative Executive, Judicial Executive, Chairman, CEO, CXO, Member of Executive Leadership Team, Board Member, VP, Manager, Staff Member, Line Member) the only way you can make the transition to Collaborator is to take the following steps in chronological order:
- Do a great deal of soul searching in order to determine a Cause of great interest to you that you would willingly support or dedicate yourself to for the rest of your entire life without any sort of reservation. A cause that requires no deliberation or justification and which has no need for anyone's permission or approval. By all means, be sure to exclude any sort of financial compensation or "how you are going to make a living" from your thought process.
- Refrain from trying to locate individuals and organizations with worthy causes that you would like to support and contribute to. You must strictly focus on your own cause or else you will quickly become disappointed and go on a "cause shopping" spree.
- Once you are at peace with that decision, then go ahead and seek others who share the same Cause via social media and any other medium.
- Once you have identified these individuals and organizations, contact only The Head of these organizations in order to offer to Collaborate based on the foregoing definition of Collaboration. There is a good reason for that: If "The Head" of such organization is too damn busy or feels too important to respond directly to your offer to collaborate, then that means they know nothing at all about Collaboration and you'll be better off someplace else.
- By all means, being a Collaborator does NOT mean that you have to quit your Employee day job since they are not mutually exclusive. Becoming a Collaborator is strictly the fastest and most reliable way to lessen your dependence on - and Quit - Your Day Job.
Since Virtual Organization Management Institute and affiliated or related entities are the only organizations in the world which practice Principled Leadership, that means it would be a quixotic effort to try to identify a Principled Leadership entity anywhere in the world. Therefore, throughout the introduction process with non-VOMI related entities, your task is to introduce them to the foregoing Principled Leadership concept.
The point being, it is NOT their actions that you need to monitor and regulate. It is YOUR VERY OWN ACTIONS which must adhere to the "Principled Leadership" concept. You get to Lead Yourself instead of trying to lead others. You get to Lead by example.
- Anyone who has ever felt being trapped into a dead-end job for the simple reason that they need to make a living and care for their loved ones.
- Anyone who had given up on their dreams and aspirations simply because they were told in more ways than one that they had to be pragmatic because ''a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush."
- Anyone who is afraid of "shooting too high" because others around them led them to believe what they sought to achieve was nothing but "a pie in the sky."
- Anyone who has been "dumbed down" for so long that they've lost all sense of self-worth and dignity and thus believe that they themselves are not entitled to live a free, dignified, and prosperous life.
- Anyone who has ever been told "it's not what you know, it's all about who you know" and felt left out because they weren't a member of the Good Ole Boys Club.
- Anyone who now lives in a country with a "caste system" that determines how far you can go and how high you can ever rise in life.
- Anyone who now lives in a country where your "family name" determines how many doors will open for you and how much you can ever hope to achieve in this life.
- Any woman who has ever felt that they needed to be part of the Good Ole Boys Club in order to succeed (i.e., they needed a man to help them succeed or rise to the top).
- Anyone who has ever felt that they Needed to Be Sponsored or Validated by the Powers-That-Be in order to succeed or rise to the top.
- Anyone who is just downright sick and tired of blaming others or constantly coming up with pathetic excuses as to why they are living a shitty life.
- Anyone who is just downright sick and tired of constantly getting manipulated by all the forces arrayed against them; have made a decision to no longer take that shit anymore; and opted to be responsible for their own life and put their life in their own hands.
- Anyone who has ever been told that they are either too young, too old and have too much experience, too inexperienced, too dumb, too fat, too skinny, too tall, and too short to ever hope to accomplish something that they aspire to.
- Anyone who believes that their nationality, race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, political affiliation is a contributing factor to their current lot in life.
Therefore, if you happen to be a beneficiary of my deeds, I only expect you to do one thing: Just pay it forward!
As the old saying goes, when you learn to do the right thing, you have nothing to worry about; but when you live by the sword, you die by the sword.
Where Do We Go From Here?
Although this is a very brief document (don't laugh), please note that all the links contained herein lead to a grand total of nearly 800 pages of content. Thus the reason I stated earlier that learning how to Collaborate is NOT for the lazy or mentally-challenged.
In the event you are able to meet that challenge, then I invite you to review the following VOMI-related initiatives in order to determine if there is any sort of synergy between any of them and YOUR (new) Cause:
