A Lesson from China

The Great Wall of China was built as a protection from the barbaric hordes of Mongolia.  It was 1,500 miles long, 12-40 feet thick and 20-50 feet high - too high to climb, too thick to break through and too long to go around.  In the first 100 years of the Wall's existence, China was invaded 3 times.  Not once did the hordes break the wall.  Each time they bribed the gatekeeper and marched through.  The fatal flaw in their defense lay in spending too much money in building the wall and too little money in building the character of gatekeepers
