…tanker i tida

Journalist og forfatter Charlton Ogburn Jr. (15.03.11 – 19.10.98) er opphavsmann til dette sitatet, som ofte har blitt tilskrevet en gammel romer, Petronius:

«We trained hard, but it seemed that every time we were beginning to form up into teams we would be reorganized. Presumably the plans for our employment were being changed. I was to learn later in life that, perhaps because we are so good at organizing, we tend as a nation to meet any new situation by reorganizing; and a wonderful method it can be for creating the illusion of progress while producing confusion, inefficiency and demoralization.»

Det sto på trykk i Harper’s Magazine i 1957.
