Corruption

I’m tired of all the corruption I see in politics and business.

Chicago-style (and now Washington-style) politics

Chicago-style (and now Washington-style) politics

Imagine you had committed a crime and were going to go to jail for breaking the law. Now imagine that you had a friend that could keep you out of jail because of his connections. Would you allow your crime to be covered up?

Let’s say you do. Good for you. You outsmarted the system. This kind of thing happens every day. What’s it gonna hurt if you participate a little teeny tiny bit. Not gonna hurt anyone, right?

Aside from the fact you’re trying to defeat the Law of Justice, which is impossible due to its eternal nature, you are now in someone’s debt without even knowing what the price is.

A recent example is our own wonderful-human-being David Letterman. To be clear, he didn’t (as far as we know) break the law, just the rules. His acts and their concealment left him susceptible to extortion.

Extortion leads to corruption.

We hear of people in the media, politics and Hollywood every day who are “outed” because they fell out of favor. If you think that the ones we hear about are representative of the actual amount of criminal/dishonest behavior, you’re delusional. An understanding of statistics tells us that. When you see one cockroach there’s 100 more you don’t see.

And with all the “favors” and “compromises” that happen in our society, particularly in our political circles, I imagine that the corruptions is rampant and disgusting. How do these people sleep at night unless they’re all atheists?

Another example of extortion:

Welfare/Bailouts.

Entitlement issues and lack of discipline leave us open to extortion from our corrupt government who uses our weaknesses to amass power and control of us. If we stop playing the game, they will cut us off. Inability to fail is unhealthy to a free society.

Absence of morality is the root problem in our society and only its elimination will put us back on track. Until we fix that, it doesn’t matter what ‘solutions we present. They won’t fix the problem. This is why we cannot continue doing the same things over and over, electing the same types of people over and over. They are corrupt and devoid of ethics.

Pick a side.
