Informatio of Legal Corruption

Corruption – A Very Human Condition

But if we can lift our point of view from the drama of our best historical example and think of societal and legal corruption in a larger way, we can conclude some things: The very first (Mayor, Chief, Shaman, Priest) chosen or elected woke up the next morning in his hut and said: “I can take some real financial advantage here. Maybe have some free sexual encounters and definitely salt away for my 401(k).” This is personal corruption. That’s just where it naturally starts.

Then there is “Machine Corruption”. Scene 1 – The Good Cop gets an envelope full of green cash from one of his seedy veteran buddies. He is told to accept or he won’t be one of the guys. Scene 2 – The Good Cop tries to return the money. That gets him in much trouble.

After Personal Corruption and Machine Corruption, there is Systemic Corruption. Everyone has figured out ways of “gaming the system” and everyone kind of knows that everyone else knows that this is “accepted” and “OK” and is not going to get you specifically in trouble, because absolutely everybody does it.

Endemic Corruption is like the Plague. Corruption is open. The party in power takes theirs while the getting is good. Everyone is on the take and there is no moral compunction about it. That’s where the phrase comes from: “Get yours while the getting is good”. As you can probably imagine, the worse corruption gets, the more open, accepted and ignored it becomes.

The Best Corruption – You Just Allow. You Don’t Have To Do.

The very name “corruption” is never used, of course. That word is only for the newspapers and the indictments. Corruption that “sets you up for life” is the sweetest and best of all. That is the goal. How big your pile is becomes the last measurement of your “success”. Like the preacher who gets a sweetheart deal from a local realtor and a powerful business man, the preacher is happy to accept the giant house. And the people who help him do the deal introduce the MECHANISM for corruption to him. He preaches great, and he has been around a long time, so a METHOD is devised to trigger the mechanism. The preacher does not invent the method, or trigger the mechanism. He simply agrees to it. Corruption is almost never a pure “taking”, like shop lifting or kleptomania. Corruption comes, most often, like a comfortable device that you simply allow to happen. Like the cop who gets his first envelope a month after he starts, you often don’t have to DO anything. You just have to allow it to happen to you. This is the best kind of corruption for those who lust for participation. The less you commit the better. The more you allow to happen, the better. Human Guilt is deep within us. The deep psychological issue is getting corruption to go down easy. The Food we eat and the Drink we drink, should be pleasant as you open your throat. You don’t want to be gagging because of some silly misguided sense of guilt or responsibility.

Who Cares About Rome?- A For All Ages Seven Step Recipe For A Corruption Stew

If its 800 BC, the 1600’s, or 2008, corruption grows like pretty flowers on a moist spring day in the social soil of the human garden of economic and political activity. It’s not only like growing a plant, it’s like an easily understood recipe of historical stew, a historical stew that has been vigorously wolfed down at the table of power for millennia.

Just take some sweat and blood and create a broth of other people’s money, then add:

1) Arrogant leadership, “I am getting mine”. “I deserve it. It’s my turn.” “I told them what they needed to hear to get me in, now I am not obligated to anyone, now that I am in power.” No matter the century, this is always a sign of decay. Corruption and Decay go together.

2) The Loss of a Middle Class – The economic engine and also the tax payers and employers, those who made the country work back when it was new and idealistic, are now dwindling. This tells you times are going to get worse,

3) Lust for power – The spoils system means that all my buddies get their share. Its the way of the world. Let’s figure out legal ways to spread the people’s wealth to all of our friends and relatives. This creates “rolling corruption” – self perpetuating systems for wealth and privilege acquisition.

4) Greed – This state of mind becomes more universal. Leading to a loss of ethics and more corruption. When every “little man” stops aspiring to traditional values or working hard and having a home and achieving measurable small steps to success, and grabs onto the “lottery ideal” – they call it making a killing. An unfortunate, but meaningful phrase.

5) Excessive Taxation – When taxation gets really onerous, the system has broken down. Small business gets demotivated. The system starts telling you – If you grow this big, you will be taxed so much, it won’t be worth it to grow. Being punished for growing is one of the simplest and most direct ways of creating a nanny state. Why get big? The government is competing with you. The “get on the dole” mindset takes hold in the general population, not just the lazy, shiftless and marginally criminal types. Everyone starts seeing the “dole” as a way that one could possible live, and stay respectable.
