Thornton P. Knowles On Government As Organized Crime

In many ways, government functions like organized crime. Bureaucrats and elected officials, along with their lobbyist and campaign worker cohorts, protect themselves through a code of silence, whistleblower intimidation, perjury, bribe taking, evidence tampering, document destruction, and the shielding of top government leaders from criminal culpability. And like members of the Mafia, bureaucrats and most politicians are in for life. To expose governmental wrongdoing, investigators would have to rely on the same tactics the FBI uses against street gangs and the Mafia. Problem is, the FBI is part of the massive governmental complex. The higher up the wrongdoing bureaucrat or politician is, the more unlikely they will be prosecuted. And firing anyone working for the government is almost out of the question. In government, the idea that all men are equal under the law is a joke. And the joke is on the taxpayers and voters who give these people their power and misbegotten wealth.
