People controlling people

This is a picture I came across a few years ago. Bruce Schneier used it to talk about ineffective security measures. It is a perfect example and metaphor for what happens when one human being tries to control another.

It's also a good example of what happens when some intervention alters the environmental feeback paths available for perceptual control. Which was, I think, one of the first things I was taught when I first joined CSGnet.

That picture should be archived as a great example of "many means to the same end".
