Previously, there was this post about perhaps the most important criteria of choosing a wife — that is, that she has a clue.
I have noticed lots of clueless people out there, not just women. I noticed this when I was a child. I wondered how the whole system works with so many clueless people out and about.
Here is perhaps part of the answer, at least from the economic perspective. Businesses need to sell products to customers (who can be discerning); furthermore they need to make a profit. Owners and managers ideally should be driven to make this all happen, by paying attention, considering better ways to do things, by looking hard to find efficiency improvements.
Often a result of all of this are some rules and processes, ones that if followed, get the job done. Furthermore, employees that may be clueless in a larger sense can follow them. If they don’t follow the boss/rules, they can go try to find their next job.
Through all of this, the clueless can be productive.
Closing question: can the clueless be productive under communism?
