Though I appreciate how Javier dissociates himself from unpleasantness, I have found another way to achieve similar results: Self-employment. I make the rules, so of course I deem them 'fair'. I also make more money in less time, put up with very little stupidity, and have less work related stress than the average person. This is the way I have worked for almost twenty years now and I'm quite happy with it.

Ahhh, the ultimate solution to office politics. I couldn't agree more. Congratulations on attaining your freedom!

Thank you for the feedback!

I have spent a good part of my life doing my best to promote fairness whenever and wherever possible. I'm ready to give up on being the Fairness Police, and try being happy instead.

Except that if the boss were a bully or disordered in some way, Javier would have a much harder time not going along with the boss's agenda. He could become a target. It's not totally his choice whether to participate in the dysfunction, because as an employee he has less power. The only thing to do with a dysfunctional workplace is leave as soon as you can. Make sure you keep your skills up-to-date! Live in a city where you have more than one potential employer. Have a plan B. Work can turn ugly at any time.
