Fantastically Corrupt

Corruption isn’t a natural disaster. I want either less corruption, or more chance to participate in it. Corruption is nature’s way of restoring our faith in democracy. You can call me the father of democracy, my actions have led to its rebirth. I’m going to give a new meaning to the phrase “wealth without enterprise” or WWE.

Power doesn’t corrupt people. People corrupt power. This road was okay before Mr President decided to give it a facelift. Now it has potholes. All intellectual tendencies are corrupted when they consort to power. Suddenly Harvard graduates forget to have some shame. You spent that much on constructing this road?

It is true that nobody is above the law, but power can make someone invisible. The bigger the government, the greater the corruption. They put the Haram in high definition so you can watch it with your eyes closed. You perpetuate a corrupt system by participating in it. Be a loose cog in the machine.

Corruption is worse than prostitution. With prostitution you only endanger the morals of the individual. Corruption endangers the morals of the entire country. Everyone wants a slice of the National cake. The prostitute can wait. Power does not corrupt. Fear corrupts. Perhaps fear of a loss of power.

Wherever there is power, greed and money. There is corruption. It’s like a high school reunion. Nobody is left out. There is no compromise when it comes to corruption. You have to fight it. Now, if you don’t mind kindly grab that baseball bat and join me in the Chevy. Those guilty of corruption should get the same jail time as murderers and fathers.

The biggest disease is corruption. The vaccine is transparency. No wonder we’ve run out of vaccine. The fight against corruption has to start within you, as integrity is an inner quality. I’ve realized why corrupt politicians do nothing to improve the quality of public school education. They are terrified of educated voters.

Bribe is bait. Demand for the rest of the loot.

  1. You elicited a ton of response to this … we all can relate to a shout out against corruption and an acknowledgement that it is everywhere. The challenge is “Don’t join the samba!” You said it, “ integrity is an inner quality.” Do your part! I try to do mine.

  2. In as much as we want to fight corruption, it has to be fought within ourselves first.
    Corruption did not just start in government offices or political parties, it started from jumping queues, using money as a bribe to get things done fast etc. It started from our relationship with people and the idea that money answers all..
    I’m not sure corruption will end anytime soon but we hope.
