|Pablo Picasso, Guernica|
Picasso shows in this painting how government atomizes, fragments, and destroys the lives of our community.
Corruption is no different.
James Joyce once said, "[I]f I can get to the heart of Dublin I can get to the heart of all the cities of the world." In the same vein, if we can understand Baldwin Park corruption, then we should be able to understand corruption all around the world. Hence, look for patterns, themes, and blueprints here.
While compiling all the articles I've written on corruption, I'm happy to see that this collection, in concert, give you a better picture of what's really happening. Hope it helps.
