It explains a lot about American society. People rise to the top by virtue of their lack of virtue, their ability to ignore human feelings and concerns, and get a job done for those above them, the investors and shareholders. It doesn't have to be this way if enough people fight against it. Watch It's a Wonderful Life and tell me that is not a better way to run society. The suggestion that you play the "impression management game", stoop to their level in other words, and engage in political warfare is reprehensible. The alternative is to "be a good team player", i.e., just suck it up, also does nothing to change the system. Exactly what you'd expect from a psychologist.
