No, please don't try to read a simplistic logic into what i wrote.  My 
point was that the principle of do-ocracy (that those who do the work 
are entitled to make decisions) will not work in the long term when 
equally applied to individual and organized/corporate acticity.  

I pointed this out in reply to the statement from Rory that:

I will not comment on the other ideas you communicated regarding the 
present state and the future of the project because that really exceeds 
the scope of the discussion here IMO.
