“People naturally resist changes that make them or their group less important. The result is that organizations tend to discount information that suggests that major change is necessary. An organization in effect uses its ‘immune system’ to isolate or expel individuals or ideas that challenge the prevailing, more institutionally comfortable vision of the future.”

– Andrew Krepinevich, Center of Strategic and Budgetary Assessments, in the book “7 Deadly Scenarios: A Military Futurist Explores War in the 21st Century.”
