If our leaders saw us as valuable, they would want us to succeed and they would create these easy/right-hard/wrong systems. Instead, we get "you need to pay more attention or we'll find someone who will" - the 21st century equivalent of whipping the mule. Just like the mule, the people playing these roles are more and more powerless to say back to these leaders "well, maybe if you made it so that I didn't have to be functioning at a super-high level every moment, we'd all be better off".
This is one of the complaints against the unionization movement here in America. It curtailed the mule-whipping, but failed to produce enough of the easy/right-hard/wrong feedback. So, we've chosen to go back to whipping that mule.
The funny thing is, someone thinks they won a battle.
