Ever hear the phrase: “Where you stand depends on where you sit?” That saying is called “Miles’ Law” and comes from Rufus Miles. While the notion is as old as ancient Greek philosophy, the specific saying comes from when Miles was a director in 1948–1949 for the U.S. Bureau of the Budget, which oversaw the Federal Security Agency, the Veterans Administration, the Department of Labor, and several lesser agencies. The article is available through JSTOR, so there is an academic paywall in effect at the link below. Like other article recommendations, I urge military readers to go to their base or post library, or reach out to any PME program as their library should be able to help you. For academics and researchers, you all should be able to get this PDF easily. For everyone else, try a lifeline to someone you know that might have JSTOR access, or consider purchasing the PDF direct. Link to article is here:
