Uphold the status quo and preserve their interests at all times.
Sounds really conspiratorial, right? It’s not…Institutions are self-preserving by design. Threats are neutralized (corporate takeovers), CEO’s come and go, but institutions are run with the same basic principles always and everywhere, mainly because those principles have been so successful at preserving them thus far.
Institutions, like organisms, seek survival for themselves and their descendants…They survive, reproduce, replace, predate, evolve, alter, consume, and grow. They are no more responsive to the individuals contained within than a person is to a single cell.
