Does Integrity Even Matter Anymore?

For as long as there have been “intelligent” humans, there has been corruption, bribery and blackmail in all levels of society. But no more prominent has it been than in the areas of organized crime and politics, which, if I didn’t know any better, seems to have become one and the same. Politicians, much like a mob boss, have made a business out of using such tactics to get things done. The difference is, most mob bosses, to a certain degree, hold a high level of integrity, whereas the majority of politicians have none whatsoever. And yet we continue to support them, even though it completely undermines and sours the meaning of compromise, negotiation and debate, the true cornerstones of any free republic.
