Corruption exists in ALL countries and societies.

I definately think that corruption does exist in every country. People with power will be tempted to be corrupted; that is the way it is. Some people can fight this urge, but not many.

I think it is a necessary for people in power to be held responsible for their actions. That is why i believe that governments and large corporations etc. have agencies in place that continually police the actions of the high profile executives and politicians etc.

I know that even that can have its downfalls; but in a lot of cases the corrupt will be caught.

Government corruption is probably the worst as it is a betrayal of trust. Alot of countries have been bankrupted by corrupt politicians (in high office). For example. Sadam Hussein, and Marcos (phillipines). They stole from their own people, the people who placed them there to look after them. That makes me feel sick... It is like stealing from you children.

i totally agree.. i was not yet born when marcos imposed martial law in my country but my parents were already alive. and i'm so disgusted :roll: .. since then, our economy started to go down.. i can't believe he could sleep at night with his ill-gotten wealth, if only he returns everything he stole, it could save our economy, we could pay our debts :roll: .. however,i guess reality really offers us a bunch of selfish monsters who could stand seeing alot of people starve, or remain in the streets unclothed and uneducated much worse, of his race :x .. :cry:

Corruption is everywhere of course, it`s the same as a friendship. You can have a new friend, and believe in him/her , but you don`t know if he/she is telling you the truth or lies! So, i think the corruption, lies and many other things exist in the world and they are natural, definetly wrong but natural. You can`t stop them

I think, sending gift to a related person shall be regarded as corruption, therefore it is a crime. However, in some countries, such activity may be treated as a gesture of friendship!!! it is ridiculous!!

A few days ago, I saw a sitcom about criminal. in it, a role said one word:
I look down on these men who have corruption. Today,I heard from my colleague. They must be validate by the certain authority before our products will be exported. but a few days later, the procedure hasn't completed, while the products are eager to be exported as the customer require. So my company gave money to the missionary in the authority.
To my surprising, this matter is finished at once. This corruption happened aroud me. The missinary receive money, and then help us to finish this procedure. My colleague said: if you don't give money to them, this procedure must spend some days.


Dear Milly,
Thanks for sharing such great corruption example with us. I have never encountered it in my previous workplaces, but I do believe you. It is part of reality. =) I see the matter of corruption is important to be exposed to public, so we can be aware of it. It is also significant to keep in our minds that we should either choose to practice corruption or not. =) Hopefully, corruption will be extinct due to the effort of "We the People" . =)

These words sound rhetorical

Corruption exists everywhere?

These words sound rhetorical. Like "there's no more more true faith" or "people of all countries drink". All such assertions must imply a degree.

The former counsellor of Germany was accused of lobbying a foreign company. The japanese minister commits suicide to avoid the shame of being brought to trial. Chinese corruptionears are regularely shot. But a half of all russian people knows their's governors-thieves, and all of them breath freely. Almost all Putin's mates became multimillionears, social activists get and publish prooves, but prosecutors do not pay attention on anything, that is against the big gang named Russian Government. Corruption has become a rule of life. People look into the future gloomy.

Is this the same corruption? Even the most suspicious politician, Putin's friend Berlusconi, is respected its people, and not many italian governors encroach upon basic civil rights.

People aren't ideal creatures. They would always like commit something dishonest. "All through the day - I me mine, I me mine, I me mine"(c) But the only absolute thing on Earth is that there is no absolute things on Earth. Our world differs by degrees of one and same appearances.

Yup, I think corruption exist in all countries.
To win a project tender in my previous company, they gave a graft to a official.

Would you please correct my sentences... {-;
