Ken Lum debate

personally I find it ok
if people specialize in
an area of labour

leaders or planners
are sometimes useful

what I find strange though
is the way in which some
individuals are elevated
to an elite status and no
matter how many people
labour on the project
they end up with the
credit and the cash

I don't see this ken lum
instance as a question
of who does what, but
one of who seems to
have the power

its also worth remembering
that Ken Lum probably
doesn't have much power
himself; he will just
be a pawn in institutional
power struggles

at the end of the day
all the power and cash
remains in the possession
of the institutions which
use Ken Lum as an outlet
for their own propaganda
