Cronyism

Well isn’t this convenient:



The fun thing about human beings is that they are rationalizing creatures.  One side effect of this is that humans are often able to convince themselves that selfish behavior is actually selfless.  Alternatively, they can convince themselves that what’s good for one former employer is good for the nation.  And, when they attain governmental power, they can enact their rationalizations, writ large, on the entire country.  Good thing that would never happen, right?
