About Heartless Hypocrisy

Who are we?

“The notion of sin and repentance waned with the belief in authority. Men thought they could make good the evil they did.”

~ Lord Acton

Silence Is Complicity

Hear No Evil - See No Evil - Speak No Evil

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.

~ Edmund Burke

The Unveiling

How VA cog culture abuses power and neglects veterans

"Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power."

~ Abraham Lincoln

Cogs In The Machine

"Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity." 

                -- Gen. George S. Patton

A Lack of Care and Compassion 

Is the definition of a bad person

"People don't care how much you know--until they know how much you care."

              -- John C. Maxwell

 

Hypocrites In The Machine

A Crisis In Confidence

"Followers who tell the truth, and leaders who listen to it, are an unbeatable combination."

               -- Warren Bennis

Reforming the VA Requires Teamwork and Persistance

Do NOT stop pursuing benefits until all veterans have their benefits

"Press on: nothing in the world can take the place of perseverance. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent."

              -- Calvin Coolidge

 

"Good ideas are not adopted automatically. They must be driven into practice with courageous impatience. Once implemented they can be easily overturned or subverted through apathy or lack of follow-up, so a continuous effort is required."

               -- Admiral Hyman G. Rickover

Clean Out VA Cog Corruption

Wherever it Is: At The Top - At The Bottom - And In Between

“Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Great men are almost always bad men, even when they exercise influence and not authority; still more when you superadd the tendency of the certainty of corruption by authority.”   

~Lord Acton

Become an Everyday Hero for A Veteran

Everyday Heroism Requires Actions

“Some people spend their whole lives wondering if they made a difference. Marines don’t have that problem.”

~ Ronald Reagan

The Warrior Ethos:

Leave No "Veteran" Behind

"A reflective reading of history will show that no man ever rose to military greatness who could not convince his troops that he put them first, above all else." 

                -- Gen. Maxwell Taylor

"The...thing you can do to make your agency a more interesting place to work and consequently less bureaucratic is to enable those under you to feel they control their own areas of work. In this way they acquire a sense of ownership in what gets done and how they do it."

                -- Kenneth Ashworth

 

"Many people believe that decentralization means loss of control. That's simply not true. You can improve control if you look at control as the control of events and not people. Then, the more people you have controlling events -- the more people you have that care about controlling the events, the more people you have proactively working to create favorable events -- the more control you have within the organization, by definition." 

-- General Bill Creech
