About this Quote
The quote recommends that powerful individuals may provide orders that threaten, however do not specify them explicitly. Rather, they are passed down via a hierarchy of command prior to finally reaching the person who will certainly perform the order. This might indicate a sense of detachment or deniability for those who release these orders, as they are not straight in charge of the activities taken. In addition, it might recommend a culture of secrecy and adjustment within powerful organizations, where harmful acts can be executed without responsibility or openness.
