A large part of the problem is that for current leaders to accept that the economic theories they have been faithfully attempting to implement are actually harmful and only serve the very wealthy, they would have to accept that they are accomplices. Most would not like to think that of themselves, so they cling to the old theories, by the lights of which they remain virtuous.

As the Dutch said while fighting the Spanish: "It is not necessary to have hope in order to persevere."
