In case you don’t know what a Kleptocarcy is here is the definition:

Kleptocarcy is a term applied to a government that takes advantage of governmental corruption to extend the personal wealth and political power of government officials and the ruling class (collectively, kleptocrats), via the embezzlement of state funds at the expense of the wider population, sometimes without even the pretense of honest service. The term means "rule by thieves".

The Two Wolves

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.
He said, ‘My son, the battle is between two ‘wolves’ inside us all.

One is Evil.
It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret ,
greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

The other is Good.
It is joy, peace , love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence,
Empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.

The grandson thought about it for a minute
And then asked his grandfather:  ‘Which wolf wins?’
The old Cherokee simply replied,
The one you feed .’
