Today we focus on FRAUD - why? And if you are unaware - why? (We also corrected some links.)

Often attributed to Mark Twain - who supposedly said that it is easier to fool people than to convince them they have been fooled! I confirm.
In fact, that is my fundamental reason for being on the net - - I am still, almost daily, becoming un-fooled!
The posts today feature science, politics, government, foreign relations - and when I word searched my archive for the word FRAUD - another mother lode - 

The Entire Status Quo Is a Fraud - Charles Hugh Smith

Fraud as a way of life caters an extravagant banquet of consequences.

This can't be said politely: the entire status quo in America is a fraud.

The financial system is a fraud.

The political system is a fraud.

National Defense is a fraud.

The healthcare system is a fraud.

Higher education is a fraud.

The mainstream corporate media is a fraud.

Culture--from high to pop--is a fraud.

Need I go on?

We have come to accept fraud as standard operating practice in America, to the detriment of everything that was once worthy. why is this so?

One reason, which I outline in my book A Radically Beneficial World: Automation, Technology and Creating Jobs for All, is that centralized hierarchies select for fraud and incompetence. Now that virtually every system in America is centralized or regulated by centralized hierarchies, every system in America is fraudulent and incompetent.
