They give occurrences, force people to pee in water bottles, and stomp over workers’ and customers’ rights like their life depends on it, because it does in their . Hurting you helps the company, who is their protector and source, hence protecting them. The person giving the orders knows what they are doing, all this person knows is that it is what they must do and that they must do even more to meet the priorities of the primary tyrant. If they had more intellect in the moment, they may know better and get creative.
