Editorial 52: Extractive classes and replacement of the extracted
Although one innocent unconscious resists think that’s true, reality shows us, again and again throughout history, simultaneously to the organization of the first states was installed an extractive class instead of extracting their livelihood from agriculture, livestock and mining they obtained their wealth the looting of the economy of their fellow citizens (perhaps that of considering vassals) or the looting of the public economy (perhaps something that everyone’s money belongs to no one).
Whether through the process of revolving doors, either by the simultaneous work of public office and private counseling, either by the requirement of commissions (better called bribe), either by directly accessing public funds through family businesses in public positions, whether looting and indebting banks, either …. So we could continue until completing a veritable manual of organized crime through the exercise, extractive classes have lived without productive work known intended for general interest.
Here, as in all drama, the presentation followed by development. But like any technology, dramatic, must exist an ending that consists in one part to the other imposes abruptly or gradually.
In recent times we see in many countries, such as the dramatic technique is showing the outcome of a loot, individual or collective covered in organizations that has lasted dozens of years: confessions of crimes the next day legal prescription of the offense, dismissal from office accompanied by the provision of alternative charge that carries legal protection, millionaire retirement and so on to complete the shell game real manual.
Citizens attended astonished while criminals are going escaping by all possible holes of state rods, in a process of regeneration or incomplete course.
There is no regeneration while money is not recovered, plundered goods or activities and criminals go to jail the same as there is no end to a war while the war criminals, against the civilian population, are not condemned, or is there no end of a murder as the murderer is free or is not convicted even after his death.
Even if the transparency and efficiency in the use of public resources are part of the regeneration this will be incomplete or false, without replenishing the money extracted or stolen goods activities.
