” Let The Thieves Rule You”


Last night I read one of the best news items ever on citi fm. It wasn’t any complicated post about how the government is destroying the nation or some lies from a government official telling us how things are getting better; it was honest talk about how stupid those in government think we are. I liked it because I had two things in mind, either they didn’t know what was going on or they knew but were genuinely helpless. After yesterday I realized they know, they just don’t care enough.
