I am not arguing here neither with “Easy” nor with Dov Anshelowitz, your postings are enlighten, I am just taking the opportunity to inject a different angel of view to the discussion.
Let’s take a very practical case for example, my employees.
I am paying to certain amount of them pretty nice wages (A High Tech Arena). Now a while ago a competing company offered them much higher income in return for their defection to the other side.
In order to prevent that of happen (I needed them badly) I raised their income in certain ways. Now they are actually earning with me much higher income then that of Gilad Sharon’s.
Do I have had the intention to bribe them? Of course I have!
Did they know that I have had this intention? Of course they have!
Did they return me a favor and stayed? Yes, all of them!
Are we all a bunch of fealty bribing and bribed criminals? Of course we are not!
So, how come? Simple, our world is like that, you give me, I will give you, if I can grab more from you and you are willing to give more then I am sure to be fine with that.
Sure enough everybody will jump in protest and shout: “Hey, this is a Civil Servants’ issue here not the free market! Yes, sure I will answer but Gilad Sharon, Though he is the “Son Of…”, he is yet belong to the free market. Not to mention that Mr. Sharon banned deliberately the, so called, “expected” favor by Mr. Appel.
But you will go on and claim that because of the fact he is the “Son of…” then he should know. No I will assert, if then all the “Sons of…” hundred thousands of the Sons Of…” the hundreds of thousand of our government’s Civil Servants should know better and therefore be banned as well…., practical? I am not so sure.
The only practical way to rectify the situation is to define those specific, most influential “Fathers of…” let’s say Knesset members, Judges, Government members etc and to put a cooling period on their offspring while they are in power.
I see at least one major advantage for that….many are not to be so keen, considering those limitation on their kids, about being glued to the political worm chairs and Judges, at last, will be rotated willfully.
