He Said That? 6/26/18

From Charles Stross (born 1964), British writer of science fiction, Lovecraftian horror, and fantasy., The Jennifer Morgue (2006):

The perfect criminal, should he or she exist, would be the one who is never apprehended – indeed, the one whose crimes may be huge but unnoticed, or indeed miscategorized not as crimes at all because they are so powerful they sway the law in their favor, or so clever they discover an immoral opportunity for criminal enterprise before the legislators notice it. Such forms of criminality may be indistinguishable, at a distance, from lawful business; the criminal paragon of upper-class virtue, a face-man for Forbes.
