Motexempel gällande korruption

Jose Mujica
Ett gott exempel i världen!

Uruguays president Jose Mujica väljer bort att låta sig korrumperas och skänker bort 90 % av sitt arvode.

Det gör mig glad. Det förtjänar respekt. Mer sån't här vill jag se.

Sedan visar det sig att hen har rätt så gröna perspektiv överlag på tillvaron och politiken. Citerar ett utdrag från den länkade BBC-artikeln:
The Uruguayan leader made a similar point when he addressed the Rio+20 summit in June this year: "We've been talking all afternoon about sustainable development. To get the masses out of poverty.

"But what are we thinking? Do we want the model of development and consumption of the rich countries? I ask you now: what would happen to this planet if Indians would have the same proportion of cars per household than Germans? How much oxygen would we have left?

"Does this planet have enough resources so seven or eight billion can have the same level of consumption and waste that today is seen in rich societies? It is this level of hyper-consumption that is harming our planet."

Mujica accuses most world leaders of having a "blind obsession to achieve growth with consumption, as if the contrary would mean the end of the world".
