Taxi drivers rejoice! Uber goes up in flames.

Last week I wrote about how workplaces in Anglo-Saxon nations have become completely feminized. Now comes the news that the world’s most successful current start-up is about to feel the wrath of not getting with the program.

Uber culture ‘out of control’.

It’s clear from former US attorney-general Eric Holder’s recommendations on how to fix Uber’s dysfunctional management that the male-dominated company grew huge without even the most basic procedures to prevent sexual harassment, bullying and other bad behaviour.

Notice how being a male-dominated company is inherently a bad thing. They don’t even try to hide it anymore.But reverse this and have a female-dominated company and the same news outlets would be celebrating it to the heavens.

Of course, the reason that Uber grew so huge so fast is because it did not kowtow to the usual PC platitudes, thus giving it a massive advantage over other businesses. This is because Uber is, or at least was, an outcome focused company operating in a morass of process focused competitors. To be outcome focused you need to hire men. But not just any men; you need guys who want to be masters of the universe.

But the party is over for Uber. Some pissant female ex-employee wrote a blog post containing a bunch of unverified accusations and all hell broke loose. In other words, the leaders of the company blinked and brought in a professional dindu in the form of Eric Holder. His company came up with a bunch of SJW-inspired recommendations which the Uber board has unanimously accepted. It is an astounding fall from grace for company CEO and co-founder Travis Kalanick.

The recommendations, adopted unanimously by Uber’s board, show clearly that the next version of Uber, called 2.0 by CEO co-founder Travis Kalanick, will have to be much different from the freewheeling company that flouted regulations and disrupted the taxi business to become the world’s largest ride-hailing company.

Mr Kalanick told employees overnight that he’d be taking an indefinite leave of absence.

The lesson that once again bares repeating is to never make a single concession to shitlib progressive SJW entryists. Once you do it’s all over. Every single time.

My favorite part of the story is this:

Mr Holder also suggests that Uber change its written cultural values to promote positive behaviour, inclusion and collaboration. The company should eliminate values that justified poor behaviour, such as “Always Be Hustlin’,” “Meritocracy and Toe-Stepping” and “Principled Confrontation.”

Get that? Values that make a company successful are not acceptable in any form. Meritocracy? You must be out of your mind! That’s not inclusive!

These people will destroy anything they get their hands on, no matter how big, no matter how successful, and at any stage of its development. It’s just a real pity that Uber never issued any stock as it would be absolutely beautiful to short right now.

What is happening to Uber is a really in-your-face example of when companies fall foul of the prevailing feminist orthodoxy. But a more interesting example of our modern workplaces at work is the case of the tower block that was engulfed by fire yesterday in London, killing twelve people. Tim Newman has done a great job tracking down the company responsible as well as other pertinent facts. The company in question is KCTMO which manages over 10,000 properties on behalf of two local councils.

It transpires that residents had complained in a blog post as recently as December 2016 that the building was an enormous fire risk waiting to happen. Amongst other things they accused KCTMO of being evil and unprincipled.

We believe that the KCTMO are an evil, unprincipled, mini-mafia who have no business to be charged with the responsibility of looking after the every day management of large scale social housing estates and that their sordid collusion with the RBKC Council is a recipe for a future major disaster.

Here is a photo of the KCTMO board.

I love me some diversity.

I seriously doubt that the board is either evil or unprincipled. On the contrary, they are in fact an excellent example of what passes for leadership in the modern feminized workplace. As Tim Newman notes, these are people for whom the process is everything and the outcome is immaterial. But Tim then goes on to complain that they are incompetent.

They are not incompetent at all. I have no doubt that they are highly competent for what they are – a board in a feminized workplace where the process is highly valued above all else. It’s no use complaining that they are incompetent. You may as well complain that you can’t breathe underwater. This lot are what passes for management these days. You can get rid of the lot of them if you want but their replacements will be exactly the same, every single time.

It is inconceivable that they were not aware of the blog post calling their management practices into question. They most probably agonized over it with a series of endless meetings where they danced around countless matters of non-importance while doing their very best to avoid at all costs any core issues that would have driven them towards making firm decisions related to anything even approaching an outcome.

They then would have contracted to external consultants to do an internal investigation to help them to implement new processes so as to better help them to dance around non-issues. The external consultants would have been well aware that the longer they played the game then the more that they would be paid, and they would have responded accordingly, which is to give the client exactly what they want.

Right now, I kid you not, this board will be sitting in a meeting where they will be congratulating themselves on having done everything that they could, and they will do so with a clear conscience because they will be telling the literal truth.

The question is how companies are able to do this and remain solvent. It’s simple – governments spending taxpayer’s money. This company is managing 10,000 government properties. They will be milking it for every cent they can. Back in 2008 all of these countries should have had a massive recession that would have cleared out all of the dead wood like a river flooding in an annual purification. Instead governments everywhere spent as much taxpayer money as they could in order to prop up their non-performing economies so that useless companies that supposedly can’t be allowed to fail were in fact not allowed to fail.

Tim Newman often writes at his frustrations at working in the corporate world, but he is an outcome focused individual in a process focused game. Look to Uber for an example of what can be achieved in this environment by a bunch of ratbags who for a brief time jettisoned the PC culture for a style more reminiscent of Mad Men.

There’s gold in them there hills, boys. You’ve just got to know how to dig. And don’t leave the door open for the PC shitlib robbers to get in.

    1. Yep. Also notice how the men are all 100% beta goober males? The two at the middle fringes were chosen because even the wymens understand that having 100% wymens is going too far at this stage, (need another 5 years I would think). The two men at the bottom were brought in by the local councils to try and have some impact on the board but were tokenistic at best.

        It’s funny. I looked at the pictures, and had almost the exact same thought… That they were all a bunch of losers, except for the last two at the bottom. They at least looked competent.

        Probably why they were at the bottom of the ladder. Sometimes, you can just tell things about people, just by looking at their pictures.

    It is difficult to understand Uber’s capitulation. A company should be able to operate without restrictions, notably:’recommendations’ from a criminal. An employer must be free to hire or discharge anyone he pleases, if his company is to excel the competition. Women are seldom equal to the rough and tumble, and even those men in drag who do run companies, usually inspire hatred – ( which of course precludes unity) – unless their staff are mentally vacant perpetual schoolgirls, and the limp-wristed men who enjoy being: ‘one of the girls’.

    There is nothing to compare to the strength and resolve of like-minded men with a common purpose.

  2. if you wanna go for some Hot Conspiracism, apparently Google had a hand in some or all of this and they’re developing self-driving cars, as is Uber. Not sure what to think of this and I basically just heard about it on an internet comments section, but it could be good.

    Did CEO and co-founder Travis Kalanick take an “indefinite leave of absence” ie. quit, resign, terminate, out of disgust? Did Uber think women wouldn’t use their services if they weren’t PC?

    I wish one of these successful companies would stand up to the PC/feminist/leftest bullies and see what happens. I think their businesses would either stay the same, (does the public really care enough to change their behaviour?) or they would grow.

    I’m surprised Uber lasted as long as it did. The taxi business has always been a cartel, with kickbacks going into ruling class pockets in return for keeping out any competition and avoiding falling prices. Those bastards have been gunning for Uber from day one. A tough row to hoe…

    I write only to “give a witness” as they say in American rural church circles to the increasing emphasis on process to the minimization if not exclusion of actual outcome in American business. In my 30 years of dealing with larger American companies, this change in emphasis has coincided with the increasing number of female middle managers with whom I have to deal. If ethics rules allowed it, I could tell hundreds of stories.

    An example which has repeated itself over and over is the explosion of form status reports to be filed at regular intervals regardless of whether circumstances have changed since the prior reporting period. And heaven forbid one has the temerity to simply say, “No change.” No, no, no. Each report must be redone each time, preferably with subtle changes of wording so that it doesn’t appear one’s merely copying last month’s missive. I actually was scolded by a female middle manager for attempting to save myself time and the company money by sending a two word “no change” update. When I pointed out that I didn’t charge for the a brief email, but would charge for generating a seven page “no change” novella, I was told the money didn’t matter. The novella was “required” for the files.

    And that is what destroys businesses.

    (Sorry for the long comment.)

        Be thankful I didn’t go on about the endless conference calls with multiple levels of distaff middle managers which consisted of me reiterating everything I said on the seven page forms which I’d filed for the preceding six months, all of which said the same thing, to get to the point where no one would make, you know, an actual decision, even though I’d advised a specific course of action beginning months prior and continuing without change monthly thereafter.

        And that’s just one situation of hundreds in the last fifteen years. It didn’t used to be this way. As I said, the changes occurred when my “old guard,” male contacts began retiring to be replaced by young, recently graduated females.

        OK, I’ll stop now.
