Download MP3, 29 minutes long. Two Ways There are two ways for people to get along in this world. One looks like this. And the other looks like this.
In the first, one person is above the other, with communication going from the upper to the lower. In the second people are side by side, with communication going both ways. And so I will talk about it first.
We see it in business, in government, and in families. Before I explain what makes it seem efficient, let me give names to the two people.
I call the upper person the Master, and the lower one the Slave. After a while, people actually began to object to my words. Check out the controversies here. They did not want to be labeled or they already had other uses for the words. But then, I looked deeper at the use of the terms and found that two great philosophers used the same terms for the same issues: So I guessed I was in good company and kept the terms — Master and Slave.

This truth system determines all the black and white things, what is absolute. How does it work? If you want to know what is the true — you ask the Master. What is really going on? What should be done? You never ask the Slave. If a couple wants to decide whether they are going to go into town on a Saturday afternoon, they simply turn to the Master.
It falls apart all the time. You can see this all around you. What makes it so? First, Masters never know when the Slave is going to rebel.
Slaves always rebel sooner or later. Think of the great slave rebellions in history: Second source of instability is in the poor quality of the decisions made. Both Master and Slave have lots of data. But Slaves are not talking. They are typically quiet, and are told to be.
Amazingly the Slave often knows more about what is going on than Masters do.Many recent statements in the press have declared that it is almost, if not quite, impossible for us to mine as much coal as we need for home and export purposes, because of the impossibility of inducing a sufficient number of miners to remain in the pits.
