Hasn’t the aristocracy always payed and paved the way for their children? Methinks the US is being prepared for a monarchy. We are about two-thirds there now.

Meanwhile, once bribe money has been payed to get these young people bribe into college, don’t they have to continue bribing their way through it and then into the position of their choice? The mediocre end up ahead while some genius starves.

Then it feeds the beast of corruption in government too.

A political science class that I took in the 1980s discussed the revolving door: a cadre of people attending same prep schools, same colleges, moving between corporations, government and lobbying. Dynasty, now with bribery.

This operation is unlikely to be the only such one.

How about systematically checking any and all athletic advantaged recruits to make sure that they have actual athletic histories. It sounds like this would have uncovered a lot of those now known, and might reveal additional networks.

Often the bribes are in the form of tax-exempt “donations” which means that all taxpayers are subsidizing their privilege.
