Politics is the breeding ground of the snollygoster politician.
Such breeding ground is not new to the universe, having originated in biblical times; its tentacles reach all over the world, no countries excluded.
It is driven by greed; but worse, it is the lust of humanity to exercise power and control over fellow humans. It is the worst and most dangerous virus in the world, having killed more humans than any plague in history.
Via the fear of a virus pandemic, we have been blinkered from seeing the real killer virus – a global economy ruled by snollygosters!
