It all started when I was watching this Mass Effect 3 episode of the game commentary show “Spoiler Warning”, and one of the hosts, Josh, mentioned that Cerberus can “still manage to succeed despite being terrible at everything”. (He says it at about the 2:00 minute mark):
Hmmm. Is there any other organization you can think of that still succeeds, despite making lots of bad decisions and being widely despised? An organization which, when seemingly being beaten, simply uses its seemingly-inexhaustible resources to take the advantage?
