Algo que yo suelo preguntarme es qué motiva a los políticos. Abiertamente corruptos, se van a dormir tranquilos a pesar de ser conscientes de todo lo que podrían hacer y no hacen.
Hunter Thompson postula una teoría bastante lógica: son adictos.
"Not everybody is comfortable with the idea that politics is a guilty addiction. But it is. They are addicts, and they are guilty and they do lie and cheat and steal — like all junkies. And when they get in a frenzy, they will sacrifice anything and anybody to feed their cruel and stupid habit, and there is no cure for it. That is addictive thinking. That is politics — especially in presidential campaigns. That is when the addicts seize the high ground. They care about nothing else. They are salmon, and they must spawn. They are addicts". - H.S. Thompson
