Vastly overpaid lectures are just bribes: hidden in plain sight

Q: Why do famous people with access to valuable secrets get paid silly money for giving 'lectures'?

A: The money is a bribe - the public payment for private information or covert influence.

Bribes are of course illegal; while paying somebody silly money for a 'lecture' is not. But the money goes from one pocket to another, just the same.

Simple, really, if you understand what is going-on, and join the dots.
