And so from what you have posted am I to assume you believe this is a good thing? Please clarify.
It's just stinkin' thinkin' powerflower! When laws are broken by John & Jane Q. Public, particularly those laws relating to theft or causing physical harm, the stinkin' thinkers will rail against the wind at the harm caused to society. When laws that affect the entire country are broken by the ruling elite, they get a free pass simply because they're the ruling elite... and they will do what they've always done. The stinkin' thinkers have a different set of standards for law breakers depending on their socieoeconomic postion; probably because of an unrecognized deference towards people in positions of power.
Nevermind that they're becoming less secretive when breaking the law because of that awe-induced cynicsm, and nevermind that the fish rots from the head down--the concept that a criminality prone government will not and cannot foster, promote or maintain a criminality-free populace is too difficult for them to grasp.
