This is a very sad commentary for me to share, especially during the holidays. I’ll be honest: I really don’t like sharing it but I feel compelled to do so. This is what seems to invariably happen whenever organizations become too big to fail while chasing the almighty dollar no matter what the “cost”. It makes no difference what that organization might be: businesses, charities, churches, political parties, bureaucracies, government or that last “bastion” of truth… science. Money and power are highly corrupting influences to any kind of human institution.
