Social Justice Warrior: someone who takes it upon themselves to defend a social group, usually with very little self awareness as to how polarized they've become on one single issue.

Alternative? Waterfall is worse in my experience, as the massive project creeps toward a big bang role out more and more desperate decisions are made to meet deadlines.

Sounds like Scrum done wrong - you need to reserve time to payback the debt each sprint - easier said than done I know but I don't think any approach gives you this for free.

Yeah, I think you have a point. The vast majority of software development is done in a shoddy way, this includes Scrum and other agile approaches. However if you have a high performing team they will do better using these approaches. This is the big secret that none of the books will never tell you. With a great team you can do any methodology and be successful, with a shit team you'll always fail. However I think with a great team you'll get more done and higher quality using agile approaches verses something like Waterfall or RUP.
