Corporations & Street Gangs
Two Flavors of the Same Ice Cream
Many Large 𝗖𝗼𝗿𝗽𝗼𝗿𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝘀 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗦𝘁𝗿𝗲𝗲𝘁 𝗚𝗮𝗻𝗴𝘀 are two flavors of the same ice cream Don't believe me? Let's scope it out:
Both types of human organization have a kingpin at the top and foot soldiers at the bottom who do most of the hard work for the least compensation. The ideal foot soldier is both capable and insecure.
In a street gang, this may mean a kid without a strong male present in his life who wants to feel like he belongs to something powerful. In the street gang, he will commit armed robberies and other criminal offenses to grow the organization's bottom line. At a large corporation, the best foot soldiers will pull all-nighters because they couldn't imagine life without their job title and employer.
They too will make tremendous sacrifices to enrich their bosses. In both organizations, hazing is used to instill loyalty in junior members.
