|4 Which means that hardly anyone is thinking about anything at all,
5 Including all the people who are working for you now.
6 aAnd since it's almost impossible to tell the difference between a person who doesn't think about anything at all and a completely stupid person,
7 It's getting a lot harder to find people who are what you would call smart,
8 And besides, when practically everybody is following the Way of Harry, doing a lousy job has absolutely nothing to do with getting blamed,
9 Even if you're a CEO.
CHAPTER 151 For example, you may have noticed that the bNips aren't building a bunch of cheap, shoddy trinkets anymore.
2 In fact, they're building stuff that's a lot better than what we make in the Most Chosen Nation,
3 Including cTVs,
4 And dstereos,
5 And ecameras,
6 And fcars,
7 And practically everything else that takes brains to build,
8 Except for gweapons.
9 But none of this should bother you at all,
10 Because foreign competitors are a lot like foreign hexchange rates,
11 Meaning they're great to blame things on,
12 Things that can't possibly be your fault,
13 Because if you're at fault,
14 Then everybody else in the Most Chosen Nation is at fault too,
||15 iAnd nobody will ever believe that,
16 Because even if they don't know anything else,
17 They know the Way of Harry.
CHAPTER 161 If your stupid people screw up,
2 jBlame it on foreign competition,
3 Which is completely unfair,
4 Because they don't have to pay a lot of stupid people more than they're worth to do nothing,
5 Which you do,
6 kBecause look at all those stupid blue-collar workers in your factories,
7 Who are black,
8 And other wrong flavors,
9 And can't possibly be your fault.
10 Are you starting to get it?
11 Are you sure?
CHAPTER 171 Of course, when any situation goes on long enough,
2 As this one will,
3 lBecause stupid people aren't going to go away anytime soon,
4 mThe people whose job it is to blame things on other people for a living will start trying to blame you for doing a bad job,
5 In spite of foreign competition,
6 Which isn't fair,
7 nBut that's the way things work,
8 According to the Way of Harry.
