Organizations have no feelings

October 9, 2013

organisation

What is an organization? What is the least common multiple of all companies and institutions? They all have a mission and a structure, they depend very much on the labor. But do they care about the future?

Organizations are advanced, artificial structures without biological content. An organization may be built up like a biological cell, but it doesn’t have any feelings. By good advertising we sometimes associate a company with emotions, but the company doesn’t feel anything for us. We are only means, our money is the input.

Political parties once was founded to strengthen the people’s right. A democratic party was a way to articulate the common public will. The party was like a megaphone, speaking the grassroots will to those in power. Now this has changed, at least in Sweden. The megaphone turns in the other direction, telling the people to vote for the parties in next election, as if they have an own will. But they don’t. A political party is like any other organization. 

Almost all humans and animals seems to have emotions, but I doubt organizations have. They can have human missions, but they have no hearts, no feelings at all. If humanity eventually will cease to exist no political party neither global company will cry. So why do we let the organizations rule the world instead of the people?
