This follows an interaction with Allenna,
Models may well be neutral, but social systems aren't. Some are geared
to torture individuals prior to any legal process in places like
Guatanamo Bay; others are geared to support the vulnerable. These two
social forms are DIFFERENT and loaded with VALUES.
From the standpoint of the US administration (as is made clear from
the very recent confessions of the ex-interrogator), a 'more
effective' Guatanamo Bay would process the captives in way that helps
deliver to the US administration its requirement to justify the rape a
sovereign country n the pursuit of its own economic and political
advantage. And, should one of us have been so 'lucky' as to be
approached by the then US administration, i am sure we could readily
apply the VSM to achieve that goal.
Therefore, might we not ask 'Is there any reason why the members of
this community (Metaphorum) would not accept that job?'
Well, is there?????
