Some corrupt wisdom coming from PHB. Who would have thought he actually had a brain.
He is right. On todays society, as long as you can deny it, you can get away with everything. And not being able to deny things means that later on lawyers will prey on you, irrelevant if what you where doing was on good faith or not.
Politicians (from all sides) are masters at this. And we, the people, are their prey. Just as we are the prey of Mega Corporations, Banksters, Government, etc.
Todays society is "The society of hypocrisy." Where liars and hypocrites are kings and the rest are just prey.
