The world is a corrupt place but there are many levels of corruption, I'm on one, and Rand Beers is on another. Beers has served the highest levels of a government that, without wanting to admit it publicly, has commanded an empire for generations, and he wants some part of it, at least, to survive. Our days at the top are numbered. If we are ever going to come in for a soft landing, we'll need a lot more people like him.

[I wrote that hours ago and now I've removed at least some of the hyperbole. Beers was never part of the leadership except to serve it. To say otherwise made no sense. Still, nobody should be surprised at what he's revealed since outside observers have been saying the same thing for months. The value of his version is political, and it's worth a lot.]
