Backlash

If your idea of grooming the next generation

Involves making them suffer as much as you did

Then I would argue that you have failed to learn the true lesson of your own struggles

and placed yourself squarely as an obstacle of the future.

For those with such mentorship plans in mind,

brace yourselves for the backlash:

More than protests and lawsuits,

you have missed the oppportunity to pass on the knowledge you have gained,

you have excluded yourself from the inner circle of innovators,

And you are now the enemy of the progress of the very institutions you have built.

Congratulations.

You have become the bureaucracy.
