Professional political tip: the inner void left by a desiccated soul is a nice place to store one's blood money.

Those who have sold out do not care. At all. It's a power game, plain and simple. Power and money. Trying to employ shame as a weapon does not work for those who do not feel it - who roll in shamelessness like a dog rolls in roadkill and proudly march the stink around to gain favors with their masters.
