Computer programs but for people
Flowcharts can be wonderful thinking and communication devices.
Sometimes, they also become extravagant tools someone you’ve never shaken hands with will try to lobotomize you with. A way to dummy-proof a system in which you’re considered the dummy. Computer programs but made for people. And when people don’t act like computers, “our process is perfect!” think the flowchart architects; “it must be the people!” but then if you remove the people, all you’re left with is a complicated flowchart. A useless piece of software neither man nor machine will run.
