Defined as the act of your upper level management not telling you what you need to know, and anything they do tell you is not true.
The meeting today sure was giving us the mushroom treatment. They have kept us in the dark about what is going on and they keep feeding us a lot of shit!

Solarpunk is a movement focused on a positive, ecological vision for a future where technology is used for human-centric and ecocentric purposes. It is a literary, artistic and aesthetic sub-genre and is also closely tied to eco-political activism. Solarpunk narratives have a distinctly positive and utopian foundation in contrast to the often dystopian visions found within other "punk" science fiction genres.
Solarpunk is a literary movement, a hashtag, a flag, and a statement of intent about the future we hope to create.

A term that draws its history from the United States Military, particularly the combat arms. It refers to a management concept adopted either accidentally or on purpose by shitty leaders. This leadership style is defined by being light on details and withholding information. Concurrently; shitty leaders will ensure that the information that does get passed along is either incorrect or unreliable (See Bullshit)

Lit:
Keeping subordinates in the dark and feeding them shit.
Ex:

Dave: Hey bob, do we know the plan?
Bob: No Dave, we're still getting the mushroom treatment, we'll probably figure that shit out when it's too late to do anything about it.
