Halfway into the tragicomic administration of Donald J. Trump, the former Director of the FBI, James Comey, has hoisted battle ensigns by (in effect) warning that the USA is at risk of becoming a 'republic' in name only, where government of the people, by the people and for the people will have perished in favour of government of racketeers, by racketeers and for racketeers.
The irony of Comey's realisation is close to exquisite, because, as a direct result of decades of chronic regulatory/judicial/legislative/media failure, currently, there are several 'Amway' copy-cat blame-the-victim 'MLM/Prosperity Gospel' cultic rackets operating in plain sight in the USA without any federal, or state, law enforcement agency monitoring them, let alone challenging them.
Indeed, a large number of federal, and state, employees are known to have fallen victim to 'MLM' rackets, whilst Donald Trump has been one of their most high-profile, and highly-paid, propagandists.
Had senior US regulators and law enforcement agents, previously done their jobs, and held Donald Trump to account for his 'MLM' related crimes, he would never have been in a position to run for public office.That said, the number of other crimes that Trump and his associates have committed, and/or benefited from, but have been allowed to escape liability from, beggars belief.
Meanwhile, a syndicate of fabulously-wealthy American 'MLM' bosses have been prosecuting, and winning, an economic and information war against the USA, its allies and even some of its enemies. However, a number of foreign-controlled 'MLM' rackets (copied from the American original) have lately begun to appear.
