That is because you are using a completely wrong meausuring stick. AFAICT, the age-old conflict about what is the true Islam underrides a lot of this. Another thing Westerners...
Why Was: US Military Dead during Iraq War 1006
Hope not.. for reasons that may be appearent with time. Just been reading a message in soc.culture.syria about trouble with children being charged with `not respecting basheer buttad' (or something like...
Temporally speaking it's a buzzword most commonly used by groups that contain the words "Rights" or "Equality" in the breastle; such groups are formed because either:
a) there is a percieved imbalance that may need adjustment; or b) the rape and pillage of an establishment; or most commonly c) all of the above
That's the "prejudicial notion" you're referring to. But let's try your example of a dept A employee being "empowered" by his supervisor to get something out of another department, B.
The power (as I've noted) does not emanate from the dept A boss and cannot be transferred to the dept A employee. The power resides with the dept B boss (or depending on the subject matter, further up the line; the boss of both dept A and dept B).
In reality the word "empowerment" can topically be boiled down to "job description". If by some stroke of genius you're trying to say "the supervisor should be telling the employee what job they're doing"...
Your contention that praise and extra rewards should be given for a job that is done satisfactorily is ludicrous. It's what the employees are getting paid for.
I'm not objecting to a project manager saying "good job, kids" and buying lunch after a project is completed if "good job" is used in a review sense and lunch simply a bit of largesse.
"enforced information sharing":
Another temporal oddity:
The UK (and several other countries' governments) are trying to force things like National ID Biometric Cards down people's throats.
The US has been attempting to force other countries to share private information on their citizenry.
Neither of which are useful in the "war against terror" media extravaganza fad, have a great potential for abuse, an even greater potential for accidental abuse and are simply bureaucratic-empire building tools.

Yes. Those Islamic extremists do not have the corner market on stupidity. The US has a similar problem with Xians. I think I'm the only...
