It always seems a Radio Club meeting hardly goes by where one member or another brings in an Item of New Business, often with pejorative intent, as a “surprise” basically intended to derail the meeting.
Often they can be found first huddling in the back of the club room, with clip boards or rafts of papers they have selected to wave about as they attempt to hijack a general members’ meeting with material that should have first been addressed to the club’s board.
I was reflecting on how various club members have wanted to ignore the facts, the law, existing written documentation, and the consensus of those around them, to support their “interestingly unique take on reality.”
This quote came across my desk in a client’s email and I think the lady has it spot on:
“You can ignore reality.
You cannot ignore the consequences of ignoring reality.”
— Ayn Rand
In other words a member can claim this or than, starkly in opposition to reality, and get away with it until it comes time to be held accountable by the laws of nature, laws of man and of course the laws of the taxman.
