Psychology 101 -
As soon as he touches the stairs, you spray all the other monkeys with cold water.
After a while another monkey makes an attempt with 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 the cold water away.Remove one monkey from the cage and replace it with a new one.
The new monkey sees the banana and attempts to climb the stairs. To his shock, all of the other monkeys beat the living daylights out of him. After another attempt and attack, he knows that if he tries to climb the stairs he will be assaulted.
The newcomer goes to the stairs and is attacked. The previous newcomer takes part in the punishment…... with enthusiasm, because he is now part of the “team”.
Then, replace a third original monkey with a new one, followed by the fourth, then the fifth. Every time the newest monkey takes to the stairs, he is attacked.
Now, the monkeys that are beating him up have no idea why they were not permitted to climb the stairs. Neither do they know why they are participating in the beating of the newest monkey.
Why, you ask? Because in their minds…that is the way it has always been!
This, my friends, is how Congress operates… and this is why, from time to time:
ALL of the monkeys need to be REPLACED AT THE SAME TIME.
