«You don’t direct your anger at the barking dog, but at its master».
This is an age-old and basically accurate proverb.
That, however, doesn't relieve the dog from responsibility for its actions.
Public officials, corporate officials, they’re all to blame for their blind and eager obedience to their masters. If they weren't there, their masters would be helpless, would be unable to implement and sustain their oppression.The truth of the matter is that most of those officials enjoy their power and get off on it. They’re not unwilling or reluctant participants.
Get rid of all the barking dogs, all the eager servants and no one is left to execute the will of the masters. The result is evident and inevitable: No more masters.
