What is Systemic Corruption?
The American Institute for Economic Research publishes a piece that dares to mention the unmentionable - the possibility that entire systems of government can be corrupt from the top down.
That's a most unwelcome thought as it puts our previous world-view under the microscope and threatens to have us re-evaluate our long-standing assumptions about the way in which we are governed. Surely in a democracy systemic corruption is impossible?
Well is it?
Many of the world's institutions are not democratic. The UN, the WHO, the WEF, the many mega-corporations now global in their reach are all unelected, as are the many "not for profit" global charities and philanthropic outfits and "think tanks" that we read about daily in our newspapers.
The AIER discusses the situation in the USA where many believe that corrupt shenanigans on a huge scale have affected the outcome of the Presidential election.
Bearing in mind the global nature of what some suspect may now be a fake pandemic (even if the original outbreak was genuine, there are good grounds to believe it ended in June); and the Johnson government (aided and abetted by SAGE with ever more dodgy projections of doom) intent on imposing widespread economic ruin and ever-mutating restrictions on our personal freedoms, all the while placing vastly expensive contracts with Big Pharma and others whilst disregarding even the flimsiest of procurement standards . . . perhaps the idea of systemic corruption within our own UK is something that we might be forgiven for bringing up.
And all the foregoing is before we start to talk about the (also unelected) WEF and Central Bankers and their coincidentally disclosed plans for a global "Great Reset" which they expect us all to welcome with open arms.
Personally, I would welcome a popular vote on it before any action is taken. Indeed, if it is as far-reaching as the name implies then we must demand a popular vote.
