Normally I do.  This question was baited.  YYou won't get me to regret taking 
the bait.  Sorry.

1) This sort of thinking would disallow any criticism of governmments, 
corporations (not even those who cook the books) or any other person or entity 
in a position of some authority.

2) If I follow you, the sorts who pay your salary are very different from thhe 
sorts who pay mine.

Oh well, back to esoterics.
