The Sickness of the EPO – Part IV: Cruel Management That Deliberately Attacks the Sick and the Weak

Posted in Europe, Patents at 7:50 pm by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

The Haar mentality

YOU CAN'T HAVE ILL STAFF IF YOU CONTROL THE DOCTORS and punish for absence

Summary: The dysphoric reality at the European Patent Office, which is becoming like a large cell (with bolted-down windows) where people are controlled by fear and scapegoats are selected to perpetuate this atmosphere of terror and maintain demand (or workload) for the Investigative Stasi [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7]

It’s becoming very hard not to be (or at least feel) sick at the EPO. Sick of Battistelli; Sick of his goons like those blindly loyal deputies and the overzealous Investigative Stasi; Sick of his many scandals and the fact that he miraculously remains in charge after all that*. Sickness has, for many people (a growing number of them) at the Office, become a ‘way of life’. They feel utterly sick coming to work at the EPO, but they must hide it or simply decide to end their EPO careers for good. Issue pertaining to health of workers will occupy a lot of our time and space in the coming months. We have a lot of material about that. It’s a scarcely explored matter, at least in the public domain (the media rarely mentions it at all). It helps explain at least some of the many suicides. So-called ‘studies’ about health at today’s EPO are a sham, as they are funded by the management of the Office and conducted by people subservient to it. They’re what a classic sceptic would dub “coverup” or “diversion”, or an attempt to cast uncertainty and doubt like oil giants notoriously do. Internal documents, by contrast, explain how sickness leaves got reduced, not because people are any less sick (or less often ill) but because they’re terrified to stay home when they fall ill; they must pretend to be healthy, even when they clearly are not. This kind of phenomenon was explained here before and will be revisited in the future. It’s a deadly combination, akin to lack of sleep (sleep deprivation experiments are well documented in scientific literature), deficiency of exposure to sun/light and so on.

“So-called ‘studies’ about health at today’s EPO are a sham, as they are funded by the management of the Office and conducted by people subservient to it.”Depressed, helpless, hopeless people whom we hear from/speak to are evidently exhausted, both mentally and physically. They project outwards some of the symptoms experienced in overly demanding production lines (my wife used to work in Taiwan where this was common). It’s incredible that outsiders were never allowed to properly study (and also publish) data on it, but as we shall show at a later point, the Office is actually aware of this issue (e.g. an epidemic of upper limb disorder, which spectacularly enough inflicts nearly half of all the staff!). And that’s putting aside esteem issues, high stress levels that are associated with coronary problems, problems with family/marriage etc.

Leaked to us this week was the following important document, “Mandate for Working Group on the improvement of working conditions and well being” or, as our source titled it, a “quick guide on how to make sick staff sicker”.

Have a look (click to zoom):

Making staff sick
Large-sized version

This is just a draft paper about invalidity. It was “produced some 5 years ago in a brainstorming meeting,” our source told us. Elaborating on what is shown or the context, our source expanded as follows:

Generally, there is one other point you are well aware of but I would like to emphasise: The unfairness and inequality of a “legal” system. Each time the office launches a bullying action, in particular against sick staff, invalids among others, they hit the persons who are in the weakest position to defend themselves. The internal “rules”, the ILOAT imposes legal notices that are acrobatic for most persons in good physical condition, but unbearable for sick or invalid staff. You may spend, hours, days or months in addition to fairte [sic] amounts of money for your lawyer but the office hires the most expensive ones and have troops of jurist to defend themselves. Therefore no chance there.

Invalids are let alone in the dark with the management shooting on persons without defense. These guys are at war and use warriors’ techniques to defeat what they consider their enemy. Invalids are their easiest and weakest prey.

Last but not least, I have developed a strategy to try to get rid of the nefarious clique. I utterly respect all those who try to enforce their rights by claiming them in front of tribunals. This may or may not work in democracies, but at least there is a chance that you get a favourable judgment, if you can afford it. SUEPO has tried many actions in front of many tribunals without an inch of success. SUEPO officials are also profoundly pacifists, which I admire, but sounds pretty naive to me.

In part 5 (there are plenty more parts to come) we intend to share some more information on what should, in my humble opinion, be approached from a criminal angle. How many people need to be systematically bullied and sometimes be driven to their death before the psychopath in chief loses his immunity and gets put — himself — before a tribunal, maybe somewhere like The Hague where he so happily and flagrantly shows off his immunity?

* The parallel realities of Battistelli were described in a comment 3 days ago as follows (we see/hear these lies repeated occasionally, even as recently as days ago by an official in Bavaria):

Neutral persons should confirm that Battistelli´s decisions are right (or not).

Mr.Battistelli tells the world outside the EPO that everything is going well inside the EPO. Quality and production are top. Only a few troublemakers are against him and his reorganisations. Most of the EPO personel and one of the unions accept or even love him and his decisions. His decisions are all right and not in conflict with any law he said. No decision of him is against human rights. His values are democracy, freedom, as well as respect for the rule of law and the dignity of each and every person.

When this is true, why does he not accept that independent persons analyse the situation in the EPO and confirm that he, Battistelli, is right and doing everything well. Then the ¨troublemakers¨ have to stop. Or is there something he has to hide?.

  3. GNEW Seedlings vs. Free Software Deforestation

    “The idea of the GNEW Project really is about keeping the goals of the GNU Project alive — hopefully, they won’t destroy or co-opt too much of the GNU Project, that people like the Hyperbola devs can’t fix it with BSD.”



  4. Joi Ito Already Admitted on the Record That Bill Gates Had Paid MIT Through Jeffrey Epstein

    An important exhibit for the accurate historical record (because MIT has been trying to deny truth itself)



  5. It's Convenient to Call All Your Critics Nuts and/or Jealous

    Bill Gates antagonists are not motivated by hatred or jealousy but a sense of injustice; spoiled brats who break the law aren’t a source of envy any more than mass murderers are subject of admiration



  6. Real History of Microsoft and How It Became 'Successful'

    New video that contains a portion about the history of Microsoft -- the part paid-for 'journalists' (paid by Microsoft and Bill Gates) rarely or never speak about



  7. Hostility and Aggression Towards Staff That Does Not Use Windows After Windows Takes Entire Hospital Down

    Microsoft Windows, with NSA back doors, continues to take hospitals offline (with records copied by criminals if not stolen by effectively locking the originals out of reach for ransom money); but guess who’s being punished for it…



  8. They Came, They Saw, We Died...

    It cannot be overstated that we're under attack (or a "Jihad" against Linux as Bill Gates himself put it) and failing to act upon it will be costly as time may be running out and our groups are being 'bought off' by Microsoft in rapid succession, as per the plan/strategy



  9. The GitHub Takeover Was an Extension of Microsoft's War on GPL/Copyleft (Because Sharing Code to Anyone But Microsoft is 'Piracy')

    Licences that make it easier for Microsoft to 'steal' (or a lot harder for Free software to compete against proprietary software) are still being promoted by Microsoft; its GitHub tentacles (see GitHub's logo) further contribute to this agenda



  10. ZDNet is Totally a Microsoft Propaganda Machine

    The site ZDNet has become worse than useless; it lies, defames and launders the reputation of famous criminals (that's the business model these days)



  11. When Microsoft's Mask Falls (or When Times Are Rough)

    Microsoft loves Linux in the same sense that cats love mice (they might play with them until they get hungry)



  12. Careers in Free Software Aren't Careers in the Traditional Sense

    With historic unemployment rates and people 'stranded' inside their homes there's still demand and need for technology; these times of adaptation present an opportunity for Software Freedom



  13. Embrace, Extend, Extinguish 2020 Edition

    Embrace, Extend, Extinguish (E.E.E.) is alive and well, but the corrupt (paid by Microsoft) media isn't talking about it anymore; in fact, it actively cheers and encourages people/companies to enter the trap

  16. Breton (EU) 'Joins' Team UPC to Help His Buddy Battistelli... Again

    As expected, Breton acts as little but an EPO tool, looking to prop up supremacy of patent litigation over science and innovation



  17. Removing Free/Libre Software as an Inadequate Response to Microsoft Windows (With Back Doors) Getting Compromised, Killing People

    GNU/Linux takes the blame (in a sense) for incidents that are purely the fault of Microsoft and its deficient software with deliberate back doors; it's believed that this boils down to opportunistic retaliation against those looking for a solution to the problem (or merely speaking about the problem)

    Efforts to take Techrights offline have been ramped up lately; but it's not working and it hardly even distracts us from publishing

    Societies that share and look after their peers/neighbours will always be better off than predatory societies, which breed exploitation, distrust, discord and eventually systemic collapse



  21. 'Journalism' in 2020: Far More Articles About What Computer Linus Torvalds Bought Than About Linux Releases

    Yesterday's (or late Sunday's) Linux announcement (RC7) is symptomatic of a broader issue we've long spoken about; it restricts people's ability to express an opinion, which can cloud any meritorious and substantial debate about technical matters journalists cannot grasp or comment on (it takes more effort and research)

  23. Media Covers WSL Like People Actually Use This Trash (a Failed Distro Which Only Works With Windows)

    Lots of abundantly redundant puff pieces have appeared in paid-for (by Microsoft) media this past week covering WSL/2, but that's grossly disproportional to the people who care and actually use those types of things (because money talks, not technical substance)



  24. Working From Home on Patent Monopolies Would Lower Their Quality and Perceived Legitimacy

    The patent system wherein people grant monopolies from their sofas and bedrooms isn't helping the already-eroded perception/image of patent offices that mostly grant patents to massive multinationals (and far too many patents overall)



  25. The Attitude of António Campinos Toward Courts and Toward Justice Same as Benoît Battistelli's

    6 years down the road we're still dealing with unaccountable tyrants who laugh at the law, laugh at lawmakers and disregard law enforcers (like the Trump regime across the Atlantic)

  27. Asking Microsoft If It Loves Linux is Like Asking Google If It's Evil

    The media keeps bombarding us with lousy, weakly-sourced messages about Microsoft regretting its stance on “Open Source” and loving “Linux” (both are lies that are very easily debunked), so journalism has an existential problem and maybe too much dependence on ad money (a form of bribery) from “Big Tech” that does “clown computing” and “apps”



  28. Features Considered Harmful

    "But the benefits of Free software, free candy and new features are all meaningless, if the user isn't in control."



  29. Free, as in “App”

    "As everyday users, we need to be able to configure our applications, and this process must/needs to be made as easy and understandable as possible."
