Staff Management: Is your employee a Porsche or a VW Beetle?

By Dr. Johan P.B. Prinsloo

The following article is a reworked version of a presentation I gave some years ago to one of the companies I consulted for:

"There is nothing in a caterpillar that tells you it's going to be a butterfly." - R. Buckminster Fuller
We often find companies descending into run-of-the-mill worker mentality with under-productive staff and we wonder why?

We are quite willing to pay R8500 to R9000 per month for a Toyota Land Cruiser pick-up, while we most often use it for no more than an hour to three hours per day travelling to and from the office. The Cruiser is nothing but a transport vehicle, which achieves the same as a municipal bus or taxi.

At the same time we have an employee that gives us his time and productivity for eight hours each day, plus he/she also spends the same amount of time travelling to and from the office. The Cruiser does not add anything to the company other than being a tax-deductible expense, while the employee adds to the company. Without the land Cruiser one could always get to the office by some other means, be it a bus, taxi or driving club.

The Great Awakening Vitamin B-17 Laetrile therapy

During 1950 after many years of research, a dedicated biochemist by the name of Dr. Ernest T. Krebs, Jr., isolated a new vitamin that he numbered B-17 and called 'Laetrile'. As the years rolled by, thousands became convinced that Krebs had finally found the complete control for all cancers, a conviction that even more people share today. Back in 1950 Ernest Krebs could have had little idea of the hornet's nest he was about to stir up. The pharmaceutical multinationals, unable to patent or claim exclusive rights to the vitamin, launched a propaganda attack of unprecedented viciousness against B-17, despite the fact that hard proof of its efficiency in controlling all forms of cancer surrounds us in overwhelming abundance. Why has orthodox medicine waged war against this non-drug approach? G. Edward Griffin, author of the book World Without Cancer contends that the answer is to be found not in science, but in politics, and is based upon the hidden economic and power agenda of those who dominate the medical establishment.
