Enforcing Puritan ethics doesn't work in places where Puritan ethics don't hold sway.

There are lots of places where what the US hypocrite state calls "bribes" work exactly the way "user fees" and "property taxes" work inside the American Empire.

Are they all excusable? Of course not, any more than are all domestic campaign contributions, lobbying, and "fundraisers".

Oh well, it's against Microsoft, so I guess that makes it ok.
