I think when people say big A Agile, they're referring to dogmatic process people, and not really Agile people.

Yes. Big A means “doing”, little a means “being”.

I think the always were. So why do they get to steal all the proper nouns, & we're left vague adjectives? rhetorical, don't answer

but why doesn't big A mean being? The Agile Manifesto, for me, is about being. It's a puzzle for me.

Big A was hijacked long ago by people with something to sell. There's no taking it back. Move forward instead.

wondering what's forward? Lean? Or is it "lean"? Is it moving forward or retreating?

Let's just stop using it. Call it "software development" or some such.

"Big A" is just a pejorative brand. I think talking about it only confuses people wanting help.

I've decide to change my name to jeff, because big "J" Jeff is dogmatic, inflexible, & just plain mean.

I'd have thought the Patton part had that dogmatic connotation
