People with a little less power hear the same things from the people with a little more power:
Your right to complain is limited.
You should consider yourself lucky.
The thing is, it’s not that those in power are wrong. They’re right. But also, they’re wrong.
You see this pattern at every level, from the largest human organizations to the smallest social units.
It’s a strange pattern and it’s likely we’ve each by on both sides of the conversation at one time or another.
I’m not complaining – I’m grateful; just a strange thing.
