Centralized hierarchies distort or withhold information and persuasion is substituted for knowledge; and the system collapses

“When information is distorted or withheld and persuasion is substituted for knowledge, trust is lost and the system collapses. This is the teleology of centralized hierarchies; there is no other possible output.

As noted in the section on Work Games: change the system’s rules and you change the output. Change the players and you change nothing.“
