standing against corruption...

Postby Kassem » Tue Oct 10, 2006 8:09 am

I believe it is more urgent now than anytime else to stand against corruption otherwise we will come to a time that we might not find anybody who dares to start such a discussion. We need to start with ourselves and people around us. Where there is a will, there is a way. I think we need to start discussing ways to stand against corruption.

If everybody says "What is it to me?", can there be a solution?

When we look deeply to internationally well-known leaders' life, we see that they had became the first around them who stands agains problems one time..

Especially if the matter is universal, nobody has the right to say "it is none of my business".. It is all of the people's business..

In my opinion...

To me,we must struggle for this every time. Otherwise,corruption keeps on and one day we can't stop it.At beginnig,we must prevent this bad situtation.At least we must oppose it.

"If you never say anything about disturbed yourself, ..... . Yes, what will happen or what happens? Complete your sentence.

Remember the "if clause" structure;

If....., .... . or
..... if .... .

For instance, If you do that, I will do this.
If you do that, I do this.


This is only one type.






And read my previous post about this topic before making comment on the previous pages, please. Your answer is there :)

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?!
