   Krishnamurti said the same thing about successful businessmen.

I think these expressions are in the direction of fact, but then they are too absolute, that is they do not allow for _degrees_.

There are relatively benign businessmen and politicians, but not many. Yet also there are many who are half-bad or half-good. It's all in degrees really, but the basic thought that the political and business worlds are relatively corrupt is true.

Often, our teachers in their enthusiasm, make things too black and white.
