All governments suffer a recurring problem: Power attracts pathological personalities. It is not that power corrupts but that it is magnetic to the corruptible. Such people have a tendency to become drunk on violence, a condition to which they are quickly addicted.

ok so a little bit of story here:
As you may have read, Jazz refers to Danny as PHANTOM, because he is just Danny's ghost halfa. Remember that I showed you some concept of Phantom without his human host? Well, there you go.
In this particular case, for some "reason" PHANTOM rebels against Danny and flees, leaving the family worried sick (keep in mind Jazz is keeping Dan as a secret. Jack and Maddie, just like the rest still sees him as a threat but Jazz. So she sometimes wanders off with the excuse of being a tutor to some of her classmates just to hang out and spend some time with her other brother.)
After several days, Jazz finds out that Phantom was actually looking for Dan—even though they are not longer the same entity, they understand each other pretty well.— Remember, Dan was never mad at Phantom. His essence is part of what he is. But what he's REALLY mad at are the choices his human half did to him, his humanity: Danny. So for him, Phantom is just like "meh, whatever".
Fast forward, Jazz is there trying to convice Phantom to return to Danny but to no avail. So, as the caring sister, decides to stay with both of them while keeping a eye on Phantom, but she knows she's racing against the clock as Danny is becoming weaker and Phantom's core is becoming "unstable".
I do not want to spoil you more than you already are but we here jump to another concept of CORRUPTION. This idea of mine was also developed many years ago. I think I still have some concepts on my tumblr account. Can't say much about it, but with these boards, I hope you can get an idea that CORRUPTION is no joke.

Never forget that Gary Webb committed suicide by shooting himself twice in the back of his skull, after he published proof of the CIAs involvment in distributing metirc tons of crack cocaine to South Central L.A. Never forget your goverment will poison you and murder you if you do something about it. Never forget that.

O grantors of dark disgrace, do not wake me again // 🥀
We never really have a clear image of Arahabaki (just a four legged monster) but I imagine Dazai would have a field day if it took on the form of a dog too. Even if its a dog of mass destruction.
Also featuring dead apple chuuya which is my favourite outfit on him. ❤️

Ladies, gentlemen, and folks otherwise, I present to you the dishonorable, fascist president doing his best to un-unite the states of America.

Isolate me and make yourself the center of my world. My every thought, desire, and action to be for you. Make me dependent on you.
Make it so even if I do manage to get away, I feel so wrong, that I come back on my knees begging for you.

I don't have a corruption kink, I just find it very arousing in trance to completely change your opinion, wants or desires to the point in which your original stance seems treasonous. Totally not a corruption kink.

80-90 percent of the money spent by the U.S. in Afghanistan found its way back to the U.S. via contracts with private military companies and other corporations. The corruption is MUCH closer to home than Maddow thinks. It’s in the United States.
I really hope that this emerging trend of victim blaming Afghanistan dies a swift death, before it becomes the accepted narrative. American politics are laden with corruption. How dare anyone blame Afghanistan for the corruption that America, the country where corporations are people, brought with it to Afghanistan.
The U.S. and her allies were in complete control of Afghanistan during the 20 year occupation. How did opioid production increase under the watchful eye of the U.S. military?
Does anyone remember how well Dick Cheney’s company, Halliburton, did after the war in Iraq? Yet somehow it’s always the same old narrative over and over: “We are the good guys. We went in there to try to help those poor backwards people, but their government was so corrupt that in the end, we couldn’t help them. (but at least we were able to turn a profit on their oil and other natural resources.)”
Pushing the narrative of blaming the “corrupt Afghan government” is a naked act of projection, and ultimately whitewashing.
It’s slick propaganda to flip blame & responsibility, away from the perpetrators of war onto the victims of war.
Remember, none of the September 11 hijackers were from Afghanistan. Not a single one. And every U.S. president from George W. Bush onwards has known this fact. America started the war-for-oil based on a George Bush lie. To bolster his political standing as a “successful war president”.
Now that’s corruption.
