Making a stand against corruption is a waste of time.

just by not being a participant in corruption we are already doing something to change it.

you can not fight it, at least over here most people don't care and the ones that do get killed for trying to change things. so it's stupid to fight it with only a few people and it's hard to make a conseince on everybody since there is a lot of people who benefits from it and believe me, it's hard to change a person's mind if they benefit from it.

this problem is very related to economy. When someone is very poor and they have a family to take care of, they find it easy to get money from corruption, so you can't judge all people or expect everyone to want to change it.

and then again there's many levels and types of corruption. have you ever copied a friend's homework or cheated in any way on a test? well this is also corruption in a way. and don't tell me you have never done it because we all have (good for you if you have never copied or cheated,you should run for president :lol: )

in my opinion, the way things are right now, just by not participating in it we are making a change. and of course teaching morals and values to the next generations will help in the future (if there is one :lol: )

Hard does not mean impossible.

We all know that it is not easy to eradicate corruption. But at least we have to minimise it.

Eliminating : impossibble
Minimising : possible

So let's take part in standing against corruption and bribery.

Let's hang the corruptors !!!

I disagree with this statement. Probably, corruption is a style of life in some countries, maybe it is the nature of human being but people through the their history have tried to extirpate corruption activity. However, this straggle allows keeping a balance betveen good and bad staff which happen around the world, especially amongst governments. For example, in Australia amongst Aussie this word "corruption" as a plague-spot and many believe that we must struggle with that. Maybe it's a question of faith?!
