All Children Under 16 Years Old Are Now 16 Years Old: Workplace Tyranny at the Gates Foundation

At the new Gates Foundations headquarters in Seattle, there is a ban on whispering. This, despite the fact that the warm and fuzzy non-profit frowns on “expressions of hierarchy.” I’m not sure what’s crazier: the fact that Gates Foundation is doing this, or the fact that it’s perfectly legal for them to do this.  One more example of workplace tyranny. Reminds me of this bit of wisdom from another political theorist.
