‘Careerism, academicism, demarcationism, managerialism, professionalism and finally dehumanisation– all maintained through Codes of Conduct’.
We are going through the most significant industrial revolution in history, without even knowing, let alone consenting.
Managerialism, outsourcing, commercial awareness, and de-skilling, have converted vocations,- carer, teacher, nurse, social worker, and, professions,- solicitor, doctor, academic, into disparate, cost effective , disposable ‘resources’ to maximise profit, for corporate resource owners.
Deregulation is another word for self regulation.
And in public services there is effectively no competition.
So, no accountability and no competition.
A recipe, for maximum extortionate profit and poor service.
Laudable verbage is bandied.
– collaboration, commercial awareness, professionalism, practitioner, dignity, codes of conduct, confidentiality, and, most of all leadership.
These Leaders are often not elected but are everywhere.
And lead beyond authority to places we ought to be even though we do not know we should be.
This Nostradamus Newspeak perniciously shapes our society, and morals.
Replacing substance, with control, and process.
Collaboration ensures individual compliance.
Commercial awareness allows rip off.
Professionalism, a perfunctory, impersonal, prescribed service TO AVOID COMMUNICATION and actual service.
Practitioner, interchangeability/removal of expertise/role.
Dignity’s autonomy, beneficence, non-maleficence and justice, is reduced to, a certain standard of personal behaviour- allowing a person to dress, not shouting and address in correct terms- name title.
Codes of conduct control the individual’s behaviour, work, and communications, mask and justify bullying.
Confidentiality allows ultimate secrecy and maintains a cell structure. Where misinformation and lies flourish. Manipulation is rife and no one has facts/truth,
Leadership allows the absolute power to dictate without question.
These ethoses underpin, our institutional,public and corporate structures.
Individualism is now heresy.
All work’s substance and performance, controlled, and reduced to zero hour cogs, owned, by a few large, untouchable corporate outsourcers.
Atos, G4S, Capita, SENCO, are paid 4 billion a year, to act, as a recruitment agency . http://weownit.org.uk/privatisation-doesn%E2%80%99t-work/whats-problem-outsourcing-companies is now
Whilst, the actual worker, is an unemployed, poorly paid, prescribed slave. https://finolamoss.wordpress.com/2014/10/04/prescribed-care-and-communication/
All a recipe for inadequate service.
As the corporate owner monopolises the market, and, is commissioned by the government, so unaccountable.
And, the actual service is provided by itinerant, prescribed, individuals ,with no autonomy, or incentive.
But even this extortioning capitalism isn’t enough,
Now supermarkets have more automated tills, than manual.
Researchers are training robots to ‘care’ for people in enforced state care.
Robots are the ultimate resource.
Human can be dropped from Human Resources.
As an ever more controllable, disposable work force, is put in place.
Huxley wrote a letter to Orwell, expressing his believe, that no government, would bother, with the psychological hassle of ‘stamping on the face of humanity’, and would prefer, the genetic engineering, and pleasure, of his Brave New World.
Our governments, be they labour or conservative appear to be conspiring to do both.
