Deja Vu and Amnesia

A friend of mine had a mail signature a while back, "I have Deja Vu and Amnesia - I remember having forgotten this before". Many parts of the world are suffering this the way I see it...

The US seems to be suffering from it now, as it prepares to "handover" Afghanistan to Pakistan. (Side note, Theory X will work here)

The Indian public seems to be suffering it now - having let the media wipe out the notion that national security is an issue at all in this elections.

IT companies are going back to Theory X after being a self professed fan of Theory Y throughout the boom. This happens each time there is some sort of a slowdown or a threat of it. Why cant they believe in Theory Y when they believed it it all along is something I cannot understand. Or, obviously, they never believed in Theory Y in the first place.
