Accountability“Accountability remains something that is assumed in the United States as well as the nations of the European Union. In Japan it is not. Accountability, everyone will agree, is good and necessary for democratic transparency and related platitudes. But there is a less immediately obvious but an actual primary reason why you want structures enforcing it in a political system. Its less visible function is that it protects powerholders against madness. When officials and politicians are held to account they are not only kept on their toes, but they themselves are forcefully reminded of what precisely it is that they are doing. If they do not accustom themselves to making a convincing case for their policies to outsiders, they tend to lose the habit of explaining it all to themselves.”Karel van Wolferen4 April 2017
John le CarréBig Pharma is also engaged in the deliberate seduction of the medical profession, country by country, worldwide. It is spending a fortune on influencing, hiring and purchasing academic judgement to a point where, in a few years' time, if Big Pharma continues unchecked on its present happy path, unbought medical opinion will be hard to find.”John le Carré
John Hnatio“Do not believe for one minute the FBI’s pretty little webpage declaring what a good job they are doing in fighting government corruption. In my job, I have been reporting U.S. government criminal conduct against small businesses to the FBI for many years. In every case, the FBI has simply turned a blind eye to the corruption whenever it involves another federal agency. The harsh political reality of the matter is that investigating corruption in the government has fallen to last place on the list of the FBI’s priorities.”John Hnatio2016
Law“Laws are like cobwebs, which may catch small flies, but let wasps and hornets break through.”Jonathan Swift1709
