Consider me one of the few. I see our economy for the unsustainable house of cards that it is, and I think it should absolutely crash.
Oh wait, it did!
Propping it back up is like trying to keep a giant tent from collapsing after its main pole has collapsed. It's just going to smother you if you keep fucking with it, and take a lot longer to do the inevitable. Get outside and start over.
What if there is no "outside"?
If you have mission critical software/hardware in your enterprise that, for some reason begins to systemically fail. You have been warned for the past couple of years but ignored it and then only realized after things started becoming so bad that it was impacting ALL core business.
Using YOUR philosophy you pull all the servers and software out of the server room, take them into the parking lot and set them on fire, let them die. Then you build from scratch.
But in doing so ALL of your core business, from manufacturing to accounting to purchasing to marketing to payroll to advertising to shipping goes to ZERO for an undetermined time while you figure out a new system that will work, design it, get it in place, implement it, test it and load up the systems, hoping that your new design will take the load of the company.
In the meantime your enterprise went out of business because, while slow and causing problems the old system allowed everyone to continue to work, build stuff, make money [though not as much] keep contact with customers and generate income. The downtime from the self generated CRASH causes all that to just STOP. Business STOPPED, Enterprise STOPPED. Money STOPPED.
The good news is no matter what new system you install it won't have a load balance issue, as there won't be users to stress it.
There is no OUTSIDE. We are in the tent, we will be in it whether it is up and running with circus clowns and tigers and elephants and trapeze artists or if it is cracking at the beams.
