Sick: Timothy DeFoggi, a former acting director of cyber security for the U.S. Department of health and Human services, was convicted Tuesday on federal charges of engaging in a child exploitation enterprise, conspiracy to advertise and distribute child pornography, and accessing a computer with intent to view child pornography.
The following story is a warning as to why centralized power is so dangerous. It doesn't matter whether the power is political or corporate, overly centralized power in all forms must be resisted whenever it appears.
The worst of all worlds is when centralized political and corporate power unite in an unholy alliance, which is what has happened to America in recent decades.
When this occurs, the combined forces of oligarchy simply begin to rapaciously feast on the citizenry with zero accountability. This is a fair description of the United States in 2014.
The primary problem with centralized power is that sociopaths (for obvious reasons) gravitate toward, and greatly covet, positions of power.
Once entrenched in such positions, they are able to act upon their perversions with general immunity, and if they are caught, are often left in positions of power by others who at that point "own them" via blackmail.
This of course is nothing new, it is how the game of power, politics and economics has been played since the beginning of time. It is also why decentralization of power
is the natural evolution we as a species must embrace in order to build a better world.
Enter Timothy DeFoggi, the one-time cybersecurity director of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, who received several awards for his government "service" over the years.
The self-proclaimed man of "many perversions," frequented a child porn site called PedoBook where he "exchanged private messages with other members expressing interest in raping, beating and murdering infants and toddlers."
