Obama gets the Peace Nobel Price, Moody´s, Fitch, S&P give a triple A rating to Lehman Brothers, the ECB buys European Bonds, IAEO accuses Iran of having a nuclear weapons programm…, what happened to good old independence? Nowadays everyone and every institution seems bribable.
To give things the spin you want seems to be only a matter of price, in this respect the free market radicals are right: everything is marketable. But my personal interpretation of this is still somewhat different. It is less in terms of market radicals , conspiracies and secret societies, than that of politics as a reflection of mans deeper nature and things as they are.
