The For Profit Revolution- Brave New 1984

quote-George-Orwell-if-you-want-a-vision-of-the-431Two years ago, a Mail piece on the inhumanity of nurses in Staffordshire, prompted my following comment;

‘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Deregulation has been replaced by self regulation.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 verbiage 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.

Practitioner,  interchangeability of expertise/role.

Dignity’s, autonomy, beneficence, non-maleficence and justice, is  reduced to, a certain standard of personal behaviour.

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.

Autonomy  dead.

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. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2111440/Aldous-Huxley-letter-George-Orwell-1984-sheds-light-different-ideas.html

Our governments, be they labour, or conservative, appear to be conspiring to do both.
