Nah, not nihilism. I'm not really sure what you call how I feel these days, but I've been fighting and screaming about corruption and collusion for so long and have really seen how deep and wide it goes, so much that HuffPo screaming bloody murder about corruption in the big mean oil companies makes me feel like I'm a kid watching Captain Planet and obsessing over someone littering or not recycling.
Journalists could expose real corruption and real "conspiracies", but that would be dangerous and they'd have to risk something to print it. A nice, safe story about oil companies is about as risque as wearing a bikini on Miami Beach.
I'm guessing -- no I'm certain -- that you didn't RTFA, because from your posts you don't have a fucking clue what you're talking about. To avoid your further embarrassment, I'll just point out that this article originated with Fairfax Media, where their journalist was contacted by an anonymous insider. He travelled to several countries, risking his safety perhaps, in a classic example of old school investigative journalism. He exposed real corruption -- that is exactly the fucking point of the article.
As to real corruption, I lived and worked in Indonesia for 24 years. If you know more than I do about corruption please feel free to inform us all. Otherwise you'd be better off if you STFU.
