The Cheaters' Philosophy
and reject it is vital to the health of any organization, society,
government, and individual.
It is not said with malice, but is simply a common-sense fact of human nature.
It is rooted in too much short-sighted, and too little long-sighted, enlightened self-interest.
Some people (Cheaters) will try to tap-into others' , and use it for their own nefarious purposes.
It is the:
A fact of human nature that must be understood and readily recognized:
Most people, naturally,
seek security and prosperity with the least amount
of effort and
There is nothing wrong with that, and most people are ethical and law abiding (otherwise, we would have wide-spread chaos, war, lawlessness, and societal disorder).
However, some people (master cheaters and parasites) have surrendered to, which is manifested as one of the following (human traits; what some call the original 7 deadly sins):
Cheaters will resort to unethical and/or illegal methods (to varying

Not that any profession is necessarily the root of any problem, but Cheaters gravitate to certain professions (i.e. those with power and opportunities for self-gain) more so than other professions. Cheaters gravitate to politics or professions that are often in-league with
government. Cheaters are everywhere among us, and they do not only exist only in the realm of law and politics. You've probably met a few. Many Cheaters do not even realize they are, nor would ever admit to being
Cheater. Some do realize it, and do not feel bad about it, and they are the most dangerous. They are often the Master-Cheaters.
They are numerous in government, because that is where the power and opportunity for self-gain is. When there is
Responsibility, and common-sense reforms, adjustments, and simplifications have been implemented to reduce cleverly overly-complicated processes, Cheaters can not thrive, and eventually move on to search for more vulnerable targets.
Most people, naturally, seek security and prosperity with the least amount of effort and pain, but some (Cheaters) often resort to unethical (even illegal) methods. Without sufficient Virtue, Education, Transparency, and Accountability, Corruption grows, and Power can exacerbate the problem. A lack of Virtue creates a lack of emphasis on Education, which creates an environment ripe for Corruption. A lack of Transparency creates opportunities for self gain. A lack of Accountability means there are no consequences, and results in a lack of all Responsibility.
Only Virtue, Education, Transparency, Accountability, and Power can yield Responsibility, and reduce Corruption:
the source of moral and ethical judgment; a
sense of right and wrong; a sense of caring.
is not merely knowing what is right or wrong, but caring enough to do what is right, and provides the motivation to seek the balance
required for any successful society, government, or organization;
an understanding of the importance of:
and the human factor (human psychology); humans naturally seek security
and prosperity with the least effort and pain, and some
people will sometimes resort to dishonest, unethical, or illegal methods to obtain it;

for a lack of

visibility and simplification of cleverly over-complicated processes to reveal and identify abusers, reveal the truth, create outrage, reduce opportunities for abuse, and discourage abuse and dishonesty;
consequences needed to encourage law enforcement, encourage ethical behavior, and discourage abuse and dishonesty;

|THE PROBLEM: Too much Corruption due to too much short-sighted, and too little long-sighted, educated, and enlightened self-interest;|
The government is too corrupt and too many voters allow it.
Government needs Power to enforce the laws, but Power without sufficient Virtue, Education, Transparency, and Accountability yields Corruption, Pain, and Misery.
But, in a voting nation, the voters are culpable too, and too many voters who repeatedly reward and empower corrupt incumbent politicians with re-election, will only lead to more Corruption, Pain, and Misery.
The nation's pressing problems will continue to grow in number and severity as long as voters continue to:
Irresponsible Voters= Bad Politicians = Bad Government
We are ALL culpable.
|THE SOLUTION: Less Corruption and less , and more Responsibility via more Virtue + Education + Transparency + Accountability|
One key part of the solution is Education, and the voters need (rather than later and more painfully) to:
|The irresponsibility of the federal government and slumbering voters is threatening the future and security of the nation. The United States is facing many pressing problems, but these problems can never be resolved and no reforms can ever be passed without, first, following our Virtue to do what is right, to peacefully force government to be Transparent, Accountable, and Responsible too! And, without merely shifting power, or stripping government of all Power to accomplish anything.|
The human trait,, must be understood and accounted for. Some people through the centuries have understood this very well, and tried to build in checks-and-balances. But, the voters have neglected to maintain sufficient levels of
required to prevent the Cheaters that are always striving to circumvent or pervert the rules and laws for self-gain and legal plunder.
Education is needed to understand how the root problem ():
þ works for irresponsible incumbent politicians,
x works against voters.
Politicians have Power by virtue of their office. Power coupled withyields Corruption, because Cheaters can simply create more opportunities for self-gain by simply doing nothing, or by breeding chaos. Cheaters also get paid hand$omely while doing it on the job, giving themselves more unfair advantages, and making their incumbency more secure and cu$hy.
The voters'works against them, because their lack of motivation to observe and monitor politicians, failing to reject the partisan warfare, and failure to stop repeatedly rewarding incumbent corrupt incumbent politicians with re-election, takes time and effort for the voters, and voters don't get paid for their time or effort. Also, it requires time and effort for the voters to maintain sufficient levels of Education, Transparency, and Accountability.
Therefore, corrupt incumbent politicians have many unfair advantages.
But, if voters want it enough and they probably will eventually, when the misery level provides sufficient incentive, voters can restore a balance of power between government and the people, by simply doing the one simple thing voters were supposed to be doing all along: vote out (or recall) all irresponsible incumbents, always, repeatedly, every election, until simple, common-sense, no-brainer, responsible reforms are passed to peacefully force government to be
