Monkey See Monkey Do

    Start with a cage containing five monkeys. Inside the cage, hang a
    banana on a string and place a set of stairs under it. Before long, a
    monkey will go to the stairs and start to climb towards the banana. As soon
    as he touches the stairs, spray all of the other monkeys with cold water.

    After a while, another monkey makes an attempt with the same result
    all the other monkeys are sprayed with cold water. Pretty soon, when
    another monkey tries to climb the stairs, the other monkeys will try to
    prevent it.

    Now, put away the cold water. Remove one monkey from the cage and
    replace it with a new one. The new monkey sees the banana and wants to
    climb the stairs. To his surprise and horror, all of the other monkeys attack
    him. After another attempt and attack, he knows that if he tries to climb
    the stairs, he will be assaulted.

    Next, remove another of the original five monkeys and replace it
    with a new one. The newcomer goes to the stairs and is attacked. The
    previous newcomer takes part in the punishment with enthusiasm! Likewise,
    replace a third original monkey with a new one, then a fourth, then the fifth.
    Every time the newest monkey takes to the stairs, he is attacked.

    Most of the monkeys that are beating him have no idea why they were
    not permitted to climb the stairs or why they are participating in the
    beating of the newest monkey.

    After replacing all the original monkeys, none of the remaining monkeys
    have ever been sprayed with cold water. Nevertheless, no monkey ever
    again approaches the stairs to try for the banana. Why not? Because as far
    as they know that's the way it's always been done around here.

    And that, my friends, is how a company policy begins.

    Does this remind anyone here about the Watchtower and the way they operate?

    Good one, Scorpion!

    And there is nothing so sad as a barrel of mind-controlled, group-think monkeys.

    Yep. This is how most hierarchical-structured organisations & governments keep their monkeys in line. Just set everything up so they will police themselves for fear of being different.

    I was going to start a new thread with this, but it somehow fits this thread well.... We both must have been inspired by the Holy Spirit Huh Scorpian?
