Individualism versus Unity

27 12 11 - 07:19

From a time past:

For employees at Perkin-Elmer, the vow of secrecy was considered a mark of honor.

"We were like the guys who worked on the first atom bomb," said Oscar Berendsohn, 87, who helped design the optics system. "It was more than a sworn oath. We had been entrusted with the security of the country. What greater trust is there?"

Even wives — who couldn't contact their husbands or know of their whereabouts when they were traveling — for the most part accepted the secrecy. They knew the jobs were highly classified. They knew not to ask questions.

"We were born into the World War II generation," says Linda Bronico, whose husband, Al, told her only that he was building test consoles and cables. "We all knew the slogan 'loose lips sink ships.'" - AP

Not today; we're too individualistic.

To us, expressing ourselves is more important than doing anything.

And unity? Outdated, say twenty million useless hipsters.

Instead, we're all going to do our own thing.

And hope no one else gets their act together, because they'll have us for lunch.

I'm sure the salary had something to do with their career choice. They can rationalize it all they want with that king and country blather if it makes them sleep better at night but even that is entirely selfish. Englebom Mandleberry - 27-12-’11 09:14

"we're too individualistic."
Yeah guys, stop thinking for yourselves.

"And unity? Outdated, say twenty million useless hipsters."

Nostalgia indeed.
Implication: people don't work on top secret projects today, or if they do, they can't keep the secret.

Confirmed? Of course not. Because it's not true. Nostalgia indeed. - 27-12-’11 20:12
All four of the above are fucking idiots. Especially the last one. Truth - 27-12-’11 21:18
