If you plan to dispose of or dismiss people, one of the marginally more clever tools is to start out calling them “heroes.” It makes the disposal super effective, because you can call it “sacrifice.”
People get upset at baby sacrifice, but hero sacrifice gets a parade.
The cart might be in front of the horse, but it’s been there so long that everyone things that is normal.
And if a mouth is filled with your praise and the word hero is bandied about check to make sure of what the hands are holding… or not holding. Might be your own coffin.
(Spoiler alert: it is)
Be careful, there.
