As an FYI, this is the Norman claim:

"Xerox management had recognized what more gullible Dilbert readers did not: Dilbert is an offbeat sugary substance that helps the corporate medicine go down. The Dilbert phenomenon accepts—and perversely eggs on—many negative aspects of corporate existence as unchangeable facets of human nature...As Xerox managers grasped, Dilbert speaks to some very real work experiences while simultaneously eroding inclinations to fight for better working conditions."

I disagree with this of course. It's simply a good laugh for me on my lunch break, or in todays case, while waiting for my code to compile.

Dilbert is a true representation of Capitalism. It does of course hinder people's desire to rise up and rebel against the oppressive owners/managers, but if that was an ideal to strive for then the world would value social justice and universal human kindess more than material wealth and we've got nearly 8,000 years of recorded history to disprove that belief.

The harm to workers is that they lose sight of reality, hope of justice, dread of chaos & sense of worth.
