The corruption here is multilayered. There is the corruption of governance and diplomacy, in which ambassadorships are sold to the highest bidder. And then there is a more subtle form of corruption, in which the people's representatives are made to feel as if they must provide cover for the corrupt practices of the executive branch.
So what happens when devilishly clever partisans sell title to the wealthy and indulgences to the poor, putting the rank-and-file in a position of having to defend the indefensible to the detriment of their duties to the people who vote for them?
All this cognitive dissonance results in more attention being focused on internal threats than external realities.
I wonder what either Bell or Murphy think of Jobbik?
