But this is exactly the point about the whole Army. The senior leadership are selected based on, and increasingly only on, qualities of cronyism and managerialism. For them to change the systems beneath them would both make themselves obsolete and say their personal competencies aren't that important. Unsurprisingly this doesn't happen.I lay much blame at the door of the Corps senior leadership. They must have known of the mutual contempt between the baying imbeciles and the rest. How could they let such a dysfunctional structure exist for so long? The trades were changed a couple of times while I was in, that was a golden opportunity to put this to bed. Yet no matter what the new titles were, it always came back to the same tired old nonsense.
Change will need to be imposed from outside.
