A Law for Us and a Law for Them
The spectre of greed haunts and permeates society. It is endemic in the government of the country and in the institutions of the state. It is inherent in human nature and presumably has been so for time immemorial. It has been condemned by the religious and the saintly, but it continues to corrupt and exploit the society we live in. It is being exposed and opposed in the media and in the pulpit and those individuals of integrity who stand against it are the ones who should be honoured, or knighted, and not those who pander to political and commercial self-interest and self-indulgement.
