This is the operative statement. The others are inoperative.
The employee is regarded by the employer merely in the light of his value as an operative. His productive capacity alone is taken into account.
Brokenness is the operative issue of our time - broken souls, broken hearts, broken places.
In another life, before taking the veil of journalistic purity, I practiced the black arts of a political operative, including 'debate prep.'
Samurai culture did exist really, for hundreds of years and the notion of people trying to create some sort of a moral code, the idea that there existed certain behaviors that could be celebrated and that could be operative in a life.
We mostly feel fearful because we feel powerless. We feel powerless, I contend, because of a style of thinking that splits information in two poles that makes us lose all the operative information we need to solve the problem.
