Miasma

Murderers and corpses fill the spaces of miasmatic organizations. All relations and activities become contaminated. Unlike other instances of organizational brutalization, miasma does not invite resistance, fight and retribution. Instead, it undermines people from within; people lose their confidence and self-esteem, moral integrity evaporates and a moral and psychological corruption sets in. Guilt, shame, inadequacy and depression become endemic, spreading into people’s homes and family lives.

(Gabriel 2012: 1147)
