Thanks to HiFi Klubben for a simple but powerful tagline! As given in my first line example, each of the above lines can be filled with either “bad/wrong” or “great/good” for the first blank and with “kills/weakens (a) good” or “promotes/encourages (a) good” for the second blank.
* The queer thing about culture – when someone deliberately practices a great and progressive approach/habit/idea/practice or does the reverse (regressive practice/procrastinating work/giving up on decisions/not trying alternatives/blame game/and so on) – and says “it happens like this around here”, it will be true for both cases. It will be very helpful to say “it happens like this around here” for the former behavior and move culture ahead and not say anything for the latter.
