Propaganda and glass houses

Roger Hedgecock considers some of the assertions and promises made in The Democrats’ Culture of Corruption. Obama said in 2006 “Freedom today is in jeopardy it is being threatened by corruption. Corruption is not a new problem…it is a human problem.” Some folks presented it instead as a partisan political problem. They seem to have been inhabiting a glass house and not being too concerned about stone throwing.

“The Most Honest and Open Government” sounded good, but calling Reid, Pelosi, and Obama’s actual practices the most open and honest is a whole lot like saying that Tammany Hall represented good government for the citizens of the City of New York!

Corruption is a human problem and a social problem. That means that it reflects social values and will not change unless and until many individuals acting together decide it is not an acceptable practice.
