• When you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing - When .4k you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors - When you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don't protect you against them but protect them against you -When you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice - You may know that your society is doomed.

  • If a monkey hoarded more bananas than it could eat,
while most of the other monkeys starved,
