Cover-up part of original crime?

Even really smart people go about life making mistakes and then trying to cover-up for their mistakes, often making the cover-up worse than the crime, so much so that it has become an unhelpful mantra. The crime and the cover-up are both crimes, and desperation for cover-up often leads to that which is worse than what started the whole fiasco. That’s true.

But the two are not always to be so glibly separated from each other. Those whose profession it is to be calculating (pictured somewhere above) make the crime and the cover-up into one and the same, envisioned from the very beginning, which is much more difficult to uncover, much more difficult to do up a bit of oversight, of prosecution. The reason is not because it is all so obscure or difficult. No, no. It’s all the more plain to see. But even the most sophisticated are quite unwilling to wipe the sleep out of their eyes. Perhaps they are afraid of life. The combination of the crime and the cover-up is, at the same time, all the more far reaching, and its discovery leads one to the very core of the corruption at hand and itself forces an unraveling. It seems to me that by all accounts, purposes and reconstructions… […] “Palimpsest palimpsest”, ever so palimpsest.

    Thinking about what you just wrote and having no idea what you may be specifically referring to, my Guardian Angel says to me “for you Nancy, this means: go to Confession and be honest for once.” yikes.
