The Corporate Tech Class Final Verdict: Useless Drones

When I was first employed in IT at a Fortune 100 company, I originally was impressed with the professionalism of the people that worked in corporate IT. The IT personnel at the smaller shops I worked at were good too, but not at an “enterprise” level. For one, they had a better knowledge of selecting vendors who are better suited to align with a particular IT use case, as opposed to the Slashdot or Microsoft crowd who feigned undying loyalty to a vendor or open source product that can be used in any scenario. They also tended to have at least some sort of consistent methodology when designing and deploying systems, with somewhat better aptitude at capacity planning.

As time went on, I discovered that these characteristics were counterbalanced by the many employees that were earning a premium for pretty much being dead weight and territorial, more focused on process as opposed to the outcomes.  Most of the corporate IT Managers tend to repeat flowery sounding rhetoric that describes nothing of actual substance while others follow suit and repeat the same catchphrases over and over again.  A whole stream of tech posts on Linked In will illustrate this behavior if you can stomach it. Although they actually belong to the upper-middle-class as part of the top 5% of income,  they ridiculously think of themselves as working class.

Outside of this sphere, they all appear to be prone to the belief in social science nonsense and the administrative state. Perhaps it is the belief that a “good” methodology with therapeutic rhetoric coupled with an appropriate expert is “scientific.”  Maybe they know deep down that corporate IT’s massive bureaucracy’s primary function is to perpetuate bureaucracy in real life. If it is revealed that the administrative state is full of charlatans then, they too, will be discovered to be an impostor, unworthy of the opulent lifestyle in the suburbs or gentrified urban neighborhoods that they reside in. While they live in luxury, those that prove to actually provide value continue to be crushed by the increasing panopticon police state. They continue to support the current trajectory even though they too are slowly and systematically being replaced by cheaper workers abroad.

Culturally, compared to the smaller IT departments I have observed, Big Corporate IT employees are the most miserable, petty,  and nihilistic; Watching their 401K’s as if their whole purpose is to wait and retire on money that probably will be worth a lot less than at present. All fit like a glove with the current Malthusian death cult of the West. I suspect the birthrate of these people is pretty close to 1 on average. ( It would be interesting to see if there is some data on Fortune 100 IT employees.).

In the alt-media, I have often heard the disparaging remarks about the lower class believing what they are told and watching reality shows or some other trash.  In my opinion, they are not the problem.  It is the Upper middle class that believes what they are told. They are the ones that are delusional and are susceptible to propaganda. Globalism is a death cult, these people will always be on their side.
