If it's broke - fix it.

Human beings have been having conversations since time began.  That's how we've figured out all of the things we've invented and how we govern ourselves.  It's how we've gotten to how we are now.

In the Industrial Age, reporting relationships, and the assumption that the dog on the top of the heap knew more than all the other dogs, were the formalized structure for conversation .  It doesn't work very well this way, anymore.
