About the Book

Over the last quarter century, and now in the twenty-first century, the workforce has been dramatically changed from blue-collar to white-collar to predominantly professional workers, well educated with knowledge as their power, and an appetite for making a difference. But strangely, these workers have been held back by their dominate programming, which is to be passive, polite, obedient, unobtrusive, submissive and nonresponsible. They have been programmed to take orders from headquarters no matter how obtuse or wide of the mark these instructions might be. Consequently, the complex organization has been moving swiftly to entropy, which means the security, stability and continuing opportunity for gainful employment has been placed in jeopardy. THE WORKER, ALONE! takes a systemic look at workers agaisnt society, and peels away the illusion, layer by layer, to reveal workers, now mainly professionals, have misplaced their moral compass and lost their center, and need to find it by realizing they must do this, alone.

First Sentence

There is a long standing belief that the mentally healthy are more likely to have a deficient perception of reality than depressives. Depression, so the argument goes, are better informed about their poor standing in the eyes of others than the healthy-minded. As they become less depressed, however, they discern an illusory increase in popularity. As you shall see, I hold little confidence with this argument. On the contrary, I feel the worker's survival is predicated on embracing reality, not denying it; on riding reality like the bull that it is until tempered to the worker's purpose.
