Has Corruption Become Legitimate?

Has Corruption Become Legitimate?
By Stephen J. Gray

People around the world are protesting in the streets, and many of the elites and corporate media are asking: “What is their problems?”
Any thinking person can see what the problems are.
We have massive financial fraud perpetrated on the money system and the fraudsters were bailed out with tax-payers dollars. Meanwhile, we have a cabal of political leaders who call themselves the G20 or Gang of 20 meeting in opulent surroundings debating how to fix the financial system. The solution is staring them in the face. Jail the financial fraudsters! Shut down all these offshore tax havens and publish the names of all the elites, banks and corporations who keep their money offshore. But, of course that will not happen. The powerful elites are too powerful and the politicians are their dumb lackeys.

“Truth is treason in an empire of lies.” - Ron Paul.

Meanwhile the war campaigns are never ending. Young men and women are sent to foreign countries to fight wars based on lies. The Iraq war was supposed to be about Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) but this turned out to be untrue. Young men and women were killed or terribly maimed and disfigured and it was all based on political lies. The people of Iraq also suffered casualties, men and women, children and babies were also killed, maimed and disfigured all because of political liars. Some of them now write books and travel the world on speaking tours after reducing a country to a hell on earth. A decent and moral society would put these “leaders” on trial for war crimes, but hey, these are the “good guys.”

The “good guys” also supply weapons, missiles, tear gas etc. to dictators around the world. They also have been known to supply both sides in a war. Think Libya where the “political pillars of society” supplied the Gaddafi regime with all kinds of weapons and are now helping the Al- Qaeda rebels to destroy the country courtesy of NATO and its bandits of bombing. Libya is another country reduced to rubble and the war criminals are the “good guys.”
Then the “good guys” get contracts for re-building the same countries they help destroy. This is called “humanitarian help” and “bringing democracy” and “responsibility to protect.” Or to quote from George Orwell’s book: 1984. “War is Peace”

Now the “good guys” are gearing up for another war. Iran is the latest enemy to be considered for a “humanitarian mission.” The NATO war horse is surely champing at the bit, and the political “leaders” and the “respected” think tanks dressed in their combat gear of expensive suits are shooting off their mouths calling for combat. As always they will lead from the rear, safely ensconced in their luxury bunkers while others do their killings and bombings. While back at the ranch and the luxury office towers, the arms dealers and bankers count their perverted profits with bloodstained hands.

Meanwhile, families lose mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters in these endless wars in defence of corporate freedom, to pillage, plunder and loot the world.
Somebody once said: “Patriotism is the last refuge of scoundrels.” Based on what we see happening today it would appear the scoundrels are in charge, and young men and women in uniform are dying because of these lying political “patriots” who sell out their national sovereignty to the unelected manipulators and supporters of the New World Order. No wonder people around the world are protesting and asking the question: Does Corruption Rule?
