Formal organisationalism led them to fail? That's interesting... can anyone summarise that for me? Too much bureaucracy or what?

Hey Moderators, or whomever, this isn't working right for me (it's cover in like grey and black splotches) Any idea how to fix it or maybe remove it?

Yeah, I'm using chrome on Ubuntu. Maybe it's my file reader. Well so long as it's not the file itself, then carry on! Thanks!
