Look at AIG in America. Top executives are still expecting to be paid huge bonuses despite the disastrous performance and virtual collapse of this company. Only people who have contempt for merit would think they merit any reward in these circumstances. They should be relieved they aren't being prosecuted and jailed.

Edward Liddy, the AIG chairman, said he could not "attract and retain the best and brightest talent if employees believe that their compensation is subject to continued and arbitrary adjustment by the US Treasury". Who are these bright talents? The same ones who required a gargantuan bail out by the taxpayers? You see what happens under the Old World Order - words like "merit" begin to resemble their opposite. The Old World Order continue to play their game, continue to think they can make fools of the people. They are so used to having their snouts in the trough they cannot imagine a world where the trough is no longer there.

And what of the response of the Obama government? Larry Summers, the president's chief economic adviser, said: "We are a country of law. There are contracts. The government cannot just abrogate contracts."

America is the nation whose citizens famously said, "No taxation without representation." Are the citizens of this same nation now going to say that they will be party to contracts that were drawn up without any consultation with them, in which their interests were not represented? The people now own AIG in all but name. All contracts that existed before are now automatically rescinded because the people were not involved in drawing them up. That is what America fought for!

There's also a Privilege Virus. 8 % of the worlds population is infected with it and many of them don't even know it.

Corruption is a monetary word. Why worry about a symptom? Eliminate the problem at the root, and abolish fiat currency.

That is the only way to avoid greed becoming an epidemic.
