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?!
