The recent Leadership change in the Australian Federal Government has called to mind further thoughts on Total Quality Management which, as I have mentioned previously, was a roaring success in Japan, but failed in North America, presumably with the “best players on the field.” This turned out to be a matter of cultural norms. We noted that the Western Educational System had been sold on the idea that “critical analysis was the way to discover the Truth.”
From an existential point of view, each of the new back-benchers may get the idea that they were “on-purpose” in life but were swept aside in the cut and thrust of the competitive strategy in Australian politics. But, the Human Spirit Can Prevail! Philosopher, Dr. Irvin Yalom has examined non-secular evidence that we humans are evolving under a Universal influence toward, for one thing, the clarification of the mass subconsciousness. In nature, this influence is toward collaboration. For example, before the heat of an upcoming “hot day” bees in a hive begin to change from pollen and nectar carrying to water carrying, while the wax-builders get ready to take on ventilation work to “water-cool” the inside of the hive to prevent all the wax combs in the whole hive from melting.
