institutional crisis

We’re in an accelerating, global epidemic of institutional failure … [with] organizations increasingly unable to achieve the purpose for which they were created, yet continuing to expand …
schools that can’t teach
universities far from universal
corporations that can neither cooperate nor compete, only consolidate
unhealthy health-care systems
welfare systems in which noone fares well
farming systems that destroy soil and poison food
families far from familial
police that can’t enforce the law
judicial systems without justice
governments that can’t govern
economies that can’t economize …

Dee Hock – 1999 – Birth of the chaordic age – page 28.
