the illusion of a vision 

had an interesting conversation today.... nothing new... the good old conversation about decision making processes and the illusion of consensus...

I am always amazed to experience how people in power shield themselves in belief that their influence is consensus.... like really, if it was consensus, the process would have involved me! so consensus without my participation is what?

yes, I am a phantom, the invisible man... ahhh the culture of silence strikes again...

so the interaction goes like.... this is consensus (involving some people), and the illusion of it just the same as the vision and mission discussion that I want to hold in the virtual conference I am told.

Now hold it!

illusion as a vision .... a mirage? Now that is an image!

So since words have a meaning, I will consult my good old thesaurus....
