Imagine a software company that is bidding for an enormous contract.
The sales-force crafts their pitch to appeal to the customer. The words are honed. More features are promised.
Faster, sleeker, secure, thoroughly tested.
The software company's offering makes it to the final cut. There is only one other competitor.
The company's stock is on fire. Everybody wants to own Acme Software stock.
The lead sales-person turns to the CEO and says, "Maybe it is time to hire a couple of engineers and that coder in Novosibirsk."
Frequent commenter John (and author of the blog Wilder, Wealthy and Wise) speculates that BLM demands are deliberately impossible because they want a fight. That assumes that they are intelligent enough to think about the future in a concrete way.
I posit that they are idiots who think they can figure it out on the fly. Because they haven't ever dealt with anything more complicated than opening a package of cigarettes, they assume that they can figure it out AFTER they get power.
Just like the sales-people getting the contract and then throwing the specifications over the wall to the technical people.
