Corruption and Stonewalling
Corruption in everything from medicine to courts has reached a staggering level. I have been personally witness to these cases of corruption among others:
- Three people from the same family were murdered in the medical system: One by being given a 20 times the deadly dose of sertaline; another by being given a six times the lethal dose of morphine; and the third by being given blood thinners when she was bleeding already. The doctors collaborated with the lawyers and the coroners to do such things as: Remove the affected organs during autopsy, falsify evidence, send lawyers to the person suing and sabotage her case, and even accuse the person suing them of having murdered her three relatives.
- A small town millionaire was put away in a nursing home, not given food or medicine as prescribed, and died after a week. The body was cremated before an autopsy could be performed.
- A man who broke his wife's skull not only got away with it but got full custody over the child.
- A brilliant, accomplished and humanitarian woman was given medication that was deadly for her weight at the time. The case has not been prosecuted to this day.
- A man who was molesting his children was allowed the full custody of the children and then escaped with them to Mauritius.
- A social work organization was putting sulfur into the food of one of their workers, causing intestinal ailments and continued harrassing her and giving false evidence to police after she left.
How did corruption get to this level? Well there may be any number of reasons for this; but one reason among many is that the people who had it within themselves to fight practices such as these had their attention turned away. We are of course dealing with attitudes such as "everyone makes their reality and is responsible for everything that happens to them," "everyone must think positive," "what you see in others is a reflection of yourself," "if you want to change anything change yourself" and "it's wrong to be angry." Well no, it is not wrong to be angry. When an extraordinary person dies in her prime as a result of negligence and corruption, one should be angry. When doctors and lawyers and judges run rackets to commit and cover up murder, one should be angry as well. These practices are wrong, and no amount of web-fabrication will change that.
Instead the attentions of people who naturally cared about such things as corruption has been turned away to irrelevant pursuits such as changing their personalities or raising their self-esteem; and here we see the real wrong. The wrong is not in the people who care about corruption; the wrong is in the people who practice corruption. If those who care change themselves to adapt to the color of those who don't care, then we are seeing a perversity. It is better to care than not to care, and it is much better to care than to practice corruption. The people who care about such matters are not the people who need to change.
Corruption will continue to grow until there is a strong and effective effort to counter it. There is no such thing as historical inevitability or social evolution; good things are achieved when people work to achieve them and are no longer achieved when people do not. It is time that there be clarity on these matters and a move away from deception and stonewalling. The future of the world's great democracies demands nothing less.
