Back to the Future! (A soon-to-be printed newspaper article from any city in America)
Too little too late!
“On______, 20__ America was hit again! After years and year’s debate on how to handle this inevitable event with open borders, disagreements from
our leaders, and clear early warning signs, many directly from the terrorist’s mouth…see the attached home-made video on American soil from the
month before…it appears we have dropped the ball…again!
We now know the death total is well over 5,000. On the day after it happened, President _________ commissioned a group of top philosophical, business
and community leader to access ‘why.’
After much internal fighting and debate The _______ Commission decided to utilize a business process assessment tool popularized by a money-making
machine, The Toyota Motor Company. The problem solving tool is called 5-Why. The tool’s basic premise is to ask ‘why’ at least five times, which
for many decades have lead business leaders to the root cause of a number of issues.
Interestingly enough this tool is counter-intuitive. For example, if you were told that the reason the Jefferson Memorial building was decaying much
more quickly than it should be…….and that the reason was because the lights were being turned on, you’d question that logic, wouldn’t you? But
it’s true and here’s how the 5-Why gets you there.
Effect - Jefferson Memorial decaying prematurely.
Why? Building being washed to remove bird feces.
Why? Lots of birds coming to eat nats.
Why? Nats are plentiful.
Why? They are attracted to the light coming on early.
Root Cause-Turn on the lights later.
Less nats + less birds + less feces + less washing = longer lasting building.
So the reason the building was falling apart is the lights were turned on!
This same logic was applied to the latest terrorist attacks.
Effect – Over 5000 Americans died.
Why? Terrorists got close enough to kill.
Why? Terrorists went undetected and garnished killing devices.
Why? Terrorists blended in our population.
Why? Terrorists got across the border unimpeded.
Why? Border security had holes in it.
Why? Washington Leaders couldn’t compromise on a solution to protect it’s citizens.
Maybe now they will???
