This tweet from the one and only ReclaimYourWaterfall brought a wide smile to my face:
So this is “the old way”. People “down there” obviously aren’t capable of decision making so we need someone to guide them. When I read this, I think about sheep and shepherds. Yep, mindless animals can’t be left to decide for themselves.

So it seems what worked well in the times of certainty doesn’t work anymore in this unpredictable VUCA world.
Hm, something to remember about.
