Violating Rule Number Two of the interwebs, I read the comments... Yikes.

FTA: "Two independent reviews of the collisions made a variety of recommendations to stem systemic shortcomings plaguing the service. However, the reviews didn’t address the two most significant factors negatively affecting mission readiness today: A widening dichotomy between policymakers and those who execute policy, and the souring relationship between junior enlisted sailors and an increasingly indolent chiefs mess."

Says an E-5. Not that his rate makes him right or wrong, but talk about “the mouse that roared.”

FWIW, the longer I'm in this business, the more I accept that some people will never be happy about their (insert circumstances), and the Chiefs are out to get them, and the MMCPO is an abusive tyrant. :rolleyes:

Isn't that the old cliche? The Sailors are all supposed to hate the MMCPO and love the CMC?

What the Navy Can Learn From the Fyre Festival. - USNI Blog.

"In addition to lacking any moral compass, concert organizer McFarland embodies the worst traits of a leader who is more interested in the status associated with his job than getting the job done. The desire to be someone, as opposed to do something, is a hallmark of toxic leaders, and the convergence of status and lack of supervision only serves to reinforce negative behavior. The number of officers indicted in connection to Fat Leonard are a testament to the corrosive influence of access and status seeking. Senior officers, after all, are no longer furnished with someone whispering “memento mori” in their ears."

I try and catch a few different analysts when on the highway. Listened to Ian Bremmer of the Eurasia Group on the Sam Harris show
Making Sense with Sam Harris #133 - Globalism on the Brink (with Ian Bremmer) and Robert Kaplan: The Return of Marco Polo's World: War Strategy & U.S. Interests in the 21st Century

Any other suggested videos?

There’s a lot of goodness in this essay - and though it’s written for the Chief’s Mess, there are some nuggets in there for everyone.
