As we read the reviews of the riots in Paris over higher taxes, and read of accounts of Facebook employees turning against their CEO, we are once again reminded of the fact that there are tipping points in corporations and similar points in governments, which, when reached, cause people to respond in unexpected ways.
As we view our own culture we realize that a significant percentage of employees today are part of the labour movement which is unionized. There is the expectation of always receiving more and more in any labour negotiations. Governments, which are stewards of the funds and resources of this society, often act as if there is no limit to such funds, and that they can use their taxation powers to cover any increased contract demands.
