The Cassandra File, opinion without impartiality
The Cassandra File contains my opinions, where I take a stand without professional impartiality.
I named this category after a prophet who wasn’t believed, even though she was correct. In Greek myth, the god Apollo desired Cassandra. To woo her, Apollo gave her foresight into the future. Cassandra spurned him despite his great ‘gift’. In revenge for her refusal, Apollo cursed her that her prophecies, although always correct, would never be believed.
While I’m not correct like Cassandra, I enjoy using Conflict Analysis, my special interest, to speculate about how things are, how they got to be that way, and what should be done about them.
