Criticism and Motivation to do Nothing


When it comes to criticisms, Some people said it doesn't matter whether critics know the answer to the problems he is pointing out or not. And that it is Job of those criticized to come up with right answer or get out for someone else to do it. 

They said what matter is to point out the flaws and errors. It doesn't matter to them that they discourage doers from working. It also doesn't matter that nobody come up with better way. the only thing that matter is picking holes in what the doers are doing. It also doesn't mater to them when they made wrong analysis based on half knowledge or outright ignorance 

That is why many people don't want to "work" again and the public services is becoming a fitting place for laggards and miracle seekers. This is also a reason many in position of authority do not listen any more to criticism as they feel the critics are just unfairly picking them out and possibly dishonest. As a result, when something is truly going wrong, they miss it.

Come to think of it, if the doers stop working because of the criticism and the critics could not come up with better ideas because they are incapable of solving problems, who will do the job?

Criticism is good but what is this thing that we do to pull down people who are working in the name of criticism? To speak hate against them because we don't like them or those around them. To ignore every positive they do and concentrate on the errors they committed. This breed hardened leaders who stopped listening to people. It also bred soft leaders who masters art of deceits by following the Niccolo Machiavelli's advice and become "bad" because they want to win the affection of "bad" people! They are not bad per se but the only way to gain acceptance of the misguided and shortsighted followers is to reinforce what they (followers and critics) think is an approach of rain when in reality it is a cloud carrying storm and bidding it's time disaster on them.

It reminds me of an old quote:

This is a story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, and Nobody. There was an important job to be done and Everybody was asked to do it. Everybody was sure Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry about that, because it was Everybody's job. Everybody thought Anybody could do it but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn't do it. It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done.
