    And here we are thinking it is just our problem

    Riots across Tunisia, December 2010. Demonstrations in Moscow, December 2011. Fasts and street marches in New Delhi, March 2012—plus street movements in Slovenia, Quebec, Iraq, Azerbaijan, and Wukan in southern China, among others, throughout the past two years. What do they all have in common? The answer is corruption, or rather the desire to end corruption, which is now the primary motivating factor for dozens of political movements around the world.

    Still in its infancy, the international anti-corruption movement has the potential to enhance and augment human-rights rhetoric enormously. Both rely on arguments about justice, fairness, and the rule of law.

    Too many people going into politics for the wrong reasons, I'm afraid.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Politics, like religion, is big money. That is why I do not trust them.

    Money rules the world and who ever is in power, controls it and has the power of spending it, while they have access to it.

    Everyone has a price, watched a video clip of a guy asking women to show their breast to the camera, at first they all refuse, by the end of the clip every single women shows her breasts just at a different price. goverments are no different.
