What would it matter? So long as you can't know what's going on in IE's engine, ghostery is pointless as people who pay off Microsoft can still spy on you, your browser sessions can be unencrypted whenever Microsoft chooses, etc. You might as well not use Noscript, either, what's the point of forbidding people from running software on an already compromised-to-the-hilt machine required to run IE (ie Windows)?

. It is a very fine balancing act to maintain currency values but it can be and has been done for a long time.

On the contrary, since the Federal Reserve got started, the markets have been less not more stable, and both the US and global financial system has seen more, not less panics, of greater, not less severity.

Exactly! Seeing your predecessor go to jail is a huge disincentive. That's why Illinois politicians have cleaned up their acts so nicely.

Hrm.... Something seems out of place here. Not that I disagree with your sentiment on a philisophical level, but in practice it isn't working very well. Either:

A) We need to massively scale up the effort and send a TON of people to jail (which I'm fine with)
B) modify the approach and focus the effort on instituting complete personal and professional transparency on a massive and unavoidable scale for anyone in public service (which I'm also fine with)

The problem I see with A is that the politicians and bureaucrats are so many that jailing the ones who deserve it is impractical without turning this country into something unrecognizable and ugly(ier?). B is a much better path, but we have some even bigger problems to overcome. Namely a lethargic and apathetic citizenry, politicians and bureaucrats who already benefit from decades of training avoiding such things, and a lack of an obvious way to impliment it from outside of government. Obviously creating a new bureacracy for this purpose just adds to and moves the problem.

Children naturally have a sense of fairness and sharing.

Perhaps on planet Barnowl. Here on earth, kids are naturally selfish petty greedy little buggers. The hardest word to un-teach a kid is "mine". Off all the ones I've known have had to be taught (at great frustration by the parents/teachers/etc) to share.

The moon may be smaller than Earth, but it's further away.
