The divine blockhead.
Sometime, it takes just one arrogant fool wearing blinders, who temporarily occupies a minor position of power (i.e., a condo honcho or a member of a Homeowner’s Association) to put the kibosh on an idea that could possible inure to the benefit of the greater group.
A close-minded Negative Nellie can for a while, easily impede the progress of an opportunity for enlightenment but, sooner or later, a good idea will come to life and be exposed to the light of day. The problem is that much damage can be done in the interim, much time can be lost and costs of implementation might rise exponentially – all because Mr. Nellie had access to the microphone and simply couldn’t resist the temptation to show off his genius.
‘Twas ever thus.
