In situations where money talks, everyone with a desirable interest would spare their ears to listen carefully and where power and political influence seem to rule in a country, so this, ultimately and inevitably, becomes the playground of corruption too . We live in an era inhabited by some of the most corrupt politicians in the world. Honestly, it doesn’t take much more than having persuasive talent, verbal ambition, valuable contacts in the right places at the right time, and a pile of money to waste freely in order to master the art of bribing someone in important positions and putting them in a position in which something dear to them would be threatened if they did not comply with any proposal that you had the courage to bring to your tables in a quick, random and unexpected warning.
This is mostly more than enough to turn a good but average politician into a corrupt individual who is always ready to enjoy the life of “white collar” crime.
