Nassim,

Thank you for that thoughtful piece which clearly and appropriately calls out hypocrisy. However, the theme which immediately sprang to my mind when I read your piece was: Whistle Blowing. Brave people, the world over, who choose “integrity” and highlight malpractice or wrong doing so often, if not always, pay a most significant price, for doing what they see as the right thing. Society at large owes a great debt of gratitude to such people of integrity, because by their actions they do, in a small way, push back against a tide of dishonesty and corruption, which too sadly pervades our daily existence.
