Clauswitz and Personnel Management

Clauswitz in his book "On War" suggested that people are either smart, or stupid, and either hard working, or lazy.

Those smart and hard working are suited for command.
Those smart and lazy make the best staff officers.
You can find some job for the stupid and lazy.
You have to fire those who are stupid and hard working. They make mistakes, and never learn, even from the deaths of thousands.

So, after the Charnel houses of the Soviet Union under Stalin, the perversion and butchery of Red China under Mao, and the torture and murder of National Socialist Germany under Hitler, Daniel Ortega's child molestation in Nicaragua, how stupid do you have to be to try that same old collectivist method again. Only this time try harder!
