Antisocial Social Club



This guy was hilarious.

Pink hat.

Big round white sunglasses.

And a shirt that says:

“Antisocial Social Club”

Truly, if he was anymore antagonistic to the norms of society, he’d probably be unloading an AK47 into an unsuspecting innocent crowd somewhere.

Okay, maybe that’s a little extreme, then again not really in this day and age of global terrorism where beheadings, suicide bombers, burning and stoning people alive, and child abductions and sex slaves are now the norms in certain outrageous societies. 

And if those are the norms in certain places, what in the world would be considered antisocial behavior there???

So a pink hat, big sunglasses, and an antisocial t-shirt in free America–that ain’t nothing anymore.

Antisocial with a big “Anti” now means death and apocalyptic destruction and global disorder.  

As to our weak politicians who can’t can stomach calling a mass phenomenon of psychotic antisocial personality disorder, antisocial–well you can judge what’s wrong with them for yourself. 

Why does it matter?

It matters only to those of you who have a moral compass to live by and who care about what normal even is–too bad our political elite are missing the substance of this. 😉

Children, Our Future


20 children dead today in school shooting. 

Completely unacceptable!

We need better psychiatric screening, more treatment options, and safer schools.

How can we expect children to excel, when they can’t even feel safe. 

Safeguard our children, protect our future.

>Psychopaths and Enterprise Architecture

>In user-centric EA we are very focused on meeting the needs and requirements of the user community. However we need to beware of the fact that some users are “psychopaths” and do not have the best interests of the organization at heart.

In the book Snakes in Suits – When Psychopaths Go To Work by Babiak & Hare the authors identify these ill-intentioned people in the organization and why the organization tolerates them or is fooled by them.

“Psychopaths manipulate the system – they are selfish care only about themselves with little regard for fairness or equity. They allow the responsibility of leadership and the perks of power to override their moral sense. Some have embraced the mantra that greed is good and that success at any cost to others is justifiable and even desirable. And at the extreme some of these people have a true personality disorder rooted in lying, manipulation, deceit, egocentricity, callousness, and other potentially destructive traits.”

As enterprise architects, we need to be continually on the lookout for what’s best for the enterprise and not get sidetracked by those with ulterior motives or personal agendas.

Have you ever experienced a situation like this?
