“If the teacher be corrupt, the world will be corrupt” – Persian proverb
Academic corruption today is real and consequential. It is also rampant. It has become a way of life. I give you a few examples of how grand discovery frauds are leveraged by the noble leaders of the academia in impressive language to lubricate the path of grander future frauds. Fraud begets bigger fraud. I am not presenting these to increase you general knowledge. At issue are your hard-earned money and your precious children and your troubled nation.
As you view these images, ponder the Latin proverb:
Corruptio optimi pessima.
(Corruption of the highest is the worst.)
