When So-called 'Public Servants' Simply Serve Themselves and Their Rich Sponsors/Friends

Biden vs Trump fake polls: I work for oligarchs; I am an oligarch!Summary: There's increasing worry that people in "civilised Europe" are governed not by public representatives but political props of those who amass almost all the wealth and thus all the power

THE EPO has long (for over a decade for sure!) been run by self-serving politicians like Benoît Battistelli and António Campinos. Prior to these two Frenchmen there was a so-called 'public servant' from the UK, who paved the way to illegal software patents "as such"...

"In UPC, for instance, we've often seen so-called 'public servants' doing exactly the opposite of guarding laws and constitutions. They actively break or violate both."One can barely see any real change. What is an ordinary citizen supposed to do when supposedly 'independent' so-called 'public servants' do such things? Shouldn't they be governed by laws and constitutions? Shouldn't the rules be paramount (supremacy of the law)? In UPC, for instance, we've often seen so-called 'public servants' doing exactly the opposite of guarding laws and constitutions. They actively break or violate both. Shamelessly and without any visible consequences to their political careers.

Beto and Biden: Sponsor Beto O’Rourke; Get corporate candidate In the United States they have some pseudo-progressive politicians covertly funded by bigoted oligarchs (not just misguided masses) and some people vote directly for oligarchs. It's astounding, isn't it?

Beto O’Rourke’s political career drew on donations from the pro-Republican business establishment

Two-party system. Sort of. The oligarchs win either way. So much for true choice...

In the case of the EPO's direction, the leaders are generally 'elected' by shadowy interests working behind the scenes for large law firms and their largest clients (monopolies, usually not even European). In turn they 'import' a bunch of friends rather than qualified and experienced public servants. The same happens not only in the EPO but at many levels in many governments worldwide.
