How I see it … corruption is in every organization known to mankind. I know many people want to see the “good in everything”, but the more television that I watch, and that goes as far as about an hour a day right before I put my head down to rest, people are living corrupt lives, which have a direct effect on others. Now, I’m not saying I’m perfect, but I do try to “do the right thing”.
Greed, power, and politics seem to be the foundation of corruption. Of course, there are other factors, but these three see to be the ones that get the highest attention. I used the word organization earlier, and I do mean every organization from cooperate america to the locally owned farmer’s market. This corruption may not be obvious, but in the long run, it all seems to spill out into the lives of people we know or people we admire.
How I see it … corruption will always be around, but we need more people to be aware of what it looks like, even in disguise. If we have more people able to describe the face of corruption, then maybe there will be a little less in the years to come, but once again, it will always be there because of greed, power, and politics … have a good weekend without corruption.
