Crony capitalism pushed to the extreme (tags)
My full-time job for the past three years was being an entrepreneur looking for funding of my tech projects. It may seem awkward and irrelevant.

It is my firm belief that I have been targeted and the market is rigged to an impossible extent that plenty of VCs, media and influential businessmen are involved. The conspiracy is to isolate me so that assigned people can profit from those lucrative opportunities. This is one scandal that most if not all media dare not to unearth because of the vested interests. A blatant fraud that is of Enron's scale and potentially send shock waves across Asia and beyond.
