Party Affiliation vs. Professionalism
07 February, 2013
Party  Affiliation vs.  Professionalism
This is pathetic! This is sick! Period! This nation is not capable of hiring people on basis of their professionalism. We usually hire based on party affiliation. And this has already become a longstanding and firmly inculcated tendency in the system of administrative hiring.
The private sector hiring style is an animal of a totally different color, which deserves another piece off of this disgruntled pen of mine. Let us do it later when time is ripe and comments are
mature! Shall we now return to where we have started? I wonder how long this morbid attitude may last in terms of filling the openings in this country. How long will it take us to accept that it is the consummate and real-time professionalism that counts in matters like overall national progress, sustainable nationwide success and irreversible public wellbeing? How many more elections are we away from understanding that hiring people by the token of their political conviction is a killer of the nation? Jobs need professionals, not the ruling political party adherents no matter how faithful they might be to the chosen political movement. It is the professionals who create product which generates money, the solid part of which will inevitably go to state budget, thus creating a chance for better life for our people. Why is this so difficult to comprehend? When it became clear that the ruling party started wobbling in the recent parliamentary elections, the entire administrative staff of the country began trembling with fear to lose jobs because there was an overwhelming feeling in the people that the change of government means an unavoidable substitution of the incumbent cadres with the workers protected by the newly hatched upper hand. And the elated supporters of the incoming political force, who were acquiring a chance to be hired as a result of the political change, impatiently waited for slaughtering the old team proteges to fill in the freshly created vacancies. This is what this country is mainly busy with – firing and hiring at the discretion of a political party and by the whim of a political leader, saying nothing about those interminable deja vu indoor intrigues and endless nepotism which often renders the hardworking honest and talented professionals victim to that pathological hiring & firing trend, and gives a chance to those abominable unknowledgeable Machiavellian bloodsuckers who will never care what happens to this nation if professionalism is not appreciated and party affiliation is made the basis of putting people in jobs. We as a nation will never be able to feed ourselves independently unless the modern notion of high professionalism vs. party affiliation gets through the thickened skulls of politically obsessed and blinded petite leaders who, to the greatest chagrin of healthier thinkers, have grabbed powerful enough levers to manipulate people as they wish and need. Georgia, stop this choking stinker forever, and you will get where your wonderful people want you to be!
