The creation of AF Policy
Making AF Policy


Start with a cage containing five monkeys. Inside the cage, hang a banana on a string and place
a set of stairs under it. Before long, a monkey will go to the stairs and start to climb towards the
banana. As soon as he touches the stairs, spray all of the other monkeys with cold water. After a
while, another monkey makes an attempt with the same result - all the other monkeys are sprayed
with cold water. Pretty soon, when another monkey tries to climb the stairs, the other monkeys will
try to prevent it. Now, put away the cold water. Remove one monkey from the cage and replace it with
a new one. The new monkey sees the banana and wants to climb the stairs. To his surprise and horror,
all of the other monkeys attack him. After another attempt and attack, he knows that if he tries to climb
the stairs, he will be assaulted.

Next, remove another of the original five monkeys and replace it with a new one. The newcomer goes to
the stairs and is attacked. The previous newcomer takes part in the punishment with enthusiasm!
Likewise, replace a third original monkey with a new one, then a fourth, then the fifth. Every time
the newest monkey takes to the stairs, he is attacked. Most of the monkeys that are beating him
have no idea why they were not permitted to climb the stairs or why they are participating in the beating
of the newest monkey. After replacing all the original monkeys, none of the remaining monkeys
have ever been sprayed with cold water. Nevertheless, no monkey ever again approaches the stairs to try for the banana.

Why not? Because as far as they know that's the way it's always been done around here.

And that, my fellow monkey, is how Air Force policy begins.
