Looking at the advusoty appointees for Trump, it occurs to me that just like the last few big companies I've worked for, with a LOT of pension-fixing, the old guard of third rate old white guys seem to be having this last gasp of blatent mutual promotion and self congratulation.. just before the world that got them there (starting education in the 1940s and 1950s) is fast disappearing.

New company leaders are not old stick-arounds, they are younger innovators, and women at mid grades is completely normal in most careers.

It just seems to me that all the angry men and bullish old fellas are just having a last gasp. Any thoughts?

It's a perspective that has occurred to me too. This is about hatred of the other and fear of women.
