I can not abide useless people.

Useless == ?

In general, a person whose removal from a social system can only improve the system's functioning. In this case, I'm talking about work and some LJ communities I dropped.

Nice - definition. The question you should be asking though is, why doesn't natural selection cull these people?

Instead, in a cruel twist, these people are generally made managers as they're too unsafe to be trusted anywhere else.

I think I already know the answer about natural selection - because we have laws in place that remove motivation to kill the people who are useless.

I'm having the same problem with managers now that I've always had with them, so I think your second statement is probably right as well.

Well, you can kill the worthless people, but unless you are rich and they aren't, you are going to jail.

That's pretty much what I was getting at, since humans like to pretend that we're not red in tooth and claw.

Indeed, they're quite annoying.

Sustained, for the most part. Unless they're trying to be better. Oh, hell. Sustained.
