Real income is what one gets for good hard and honest work. IF IT'S NOT INCOME, IT'S THEFT.
It's also hard work routing out theft and corruption. Really hard. Real difficult to be pointing it out, with your own face and your own finger, when you're personally under threat and intimidation.
Maybe we should offer a ten or twenty percent reward to those who actually point out and testify for that corruption. That is percentage of the unsubstantiated cost. Not paying them for doing the right thing, but rather something to sustain them for inevitable loss of job or career, or whatever. Who knows if they are good enough at it, we reveal and cork more losses than we use in the endeavor.
