The shadier side of power-wielding

The politics of extraction distraction and the politics of the resource curse is the politics of corruption. 
How the Jews factor into a social system that is in decline, what role they play in the violation of the rules of proper governance, is part of the story of their diaspora. The cost of exile is making one's people readily available to the shadier side of power-wielding. 
Jews in Western and Central Europe in the 19th and 20th centuries were cowardly not only with respect to their own; they were cowardly with respect to their host cultures.
