Goodson's Law and other useful observations

When the consequences of incompetence become indistinguishable from the consequences of malice, it is wiser and safer to assume malice.

It's a corollary of Ockham's Razor but applied to the machinations of bureaucrats,  politicians and other manipulators and schemers.

Then there is Hallam's observation:  That, somehow, the apparently incompetent succeed in achieving their agenda.

My father told me that 'People promote themselves'. By which he meant that, not only do they blow their own trumpets, they promote people like themselves. Which is fine if you are dealing with the good, the wise and the benevolent; not so good, if your boss/line manager is incompetent and foolish.

Find yourself a boss like  you; not a boss you like. It's not always the same thing.

Finally, I was taught as a young Christian that: The Devil always overreaches himself. He does too.
