Enron is a Parable

I just saw the movie, 'Enron the smartest guys in the room'.
And it dawned on me that Enron is a parable for the whole of American society.

The CEOs of Enron were professional liars, and the great majority of employes followed them blindly. They were manipulated, and would have insulted anyone telling them the truth at the time. Their pride was such that the possibility of them being lied to cover up illegal and inmoral activity by such a mighty company was ruled out from the start without ever needing to consider the evidence.

But guess what, the building came down on their faces.
I say this is a parable to understand where America finds itself today. But the truth sonner or later will come to light.
