Informatio of Legal Corruption

Corruption – A Very Human Condition

But if we can lift our point of view from the drama of our best historical example and think of societal and legal corruption in a larger way, we can conclude some things: The very first (Mayor, Chief, Shaman, Priest) chosen or elected woke up the next morning in his hut and said: “I can take some real financial advantage here. Maybe have some free sexual encounters and definitely salt away for my 401(k).” This is personal corruption. That’s just where it naturally starts.

Then there is “Machine Corruption”. Scene 1 – The Good Cop gets an envelope full of green cash from one of his seedy veteran buddies. He is told to accept or he won’t be one of the guys. Scene 2 – The Good Cop tries to return the money. That gets him in much trouble.

After Personal Corruption and Machine Corruption, there is Systemic Corruption. Everyone has figured out ways of “gaming the system” and everyone kind of knows that everyone else knows that this is “accepted” and “OK” and is not going to get you specifically in trouble, because absolutely everybody does it.

Endemic Corruption is like the Plague. Corruption is open. The party in power takes theirs while the getting is good. Everyone is on the take and there is no moral compunction about it. That’s where the phrase comes from: “Get yours while the getting is good”. As you can probably imagine, the worse corruption gets, the more open, accepted and ignored it becomes.

The Best Corruption – You Just Allow. You Don’t Have To Do.

The very name “corruption” is never used, of course. That word is only for the newspapers and the indictments. Corruption that “sets you up for life” is the sweetest and best of all. That is the goal. How big your pile is becomes the last measurement of your “success”. Like the preacher who gets a sweetheart deal from a local realtor and a powerful business man, the preacher is happy to accept the giant house. And the people who help him do the deal introduce the MECHANISM for corruption to him. He preaches great, and he has been around a long time, so a METHOD is devised to trigger the mechanism. The preacher does not invent the method, or trigger the mechanism. He simply agrees to it. Corruption is almost never a pure “taking”, like shop lifting or kleptomania. Corruption comes, most often, like a comfortable device that you simply allow to happen. Like the cop who gets his first envelope a month after he starts, you often don’t have to DO anything. You just have to allow it to happen to you. This is the best kind of corruption for those who lust for participation. The less you commit the better. The more you allow to happen, the better. Human Guilt is deep within us. The deep psychological issue is getting corruption to go down easy. The Food we eat and the Drink we drink, should be pleasant as you open your throat. You don’t want to be gagging because of some silly misguided sense of guilt or responsibility.

Who Cares About Rome?- A For All Ages Seven Step Recipe For A Corruption Stew

If its 800 BC, the 1600’s, or 2008, corruption grows like pretty flowers on a moist spring day in the social soil of the human garden of economic and political activity. It’s not only like growing a plant, it’s like an easily understood recipe of historical stew, a historical stew that has been vigorously wolfed down at the table of power for millennia.

Just take some sweat and blood and create a broth of other people’s money, then add:

1) Arrogant leadership, “I am getting mine”. “I deserve it. It’s my turn.” “I told them what they needed to hear to get me in, now I am not obligated to anyone, now that I am in power.” No matter the century, this is always a sign of decay. Corruption and Decay go together.

2) The Loss of a Middle Class – The economic engine and also the tax payers and employers, those who made the country work back when it was new and idealistic, are now dwindling. This tells you times are going to get worse,

3) Lust for power – The spoils system means that all my buddies get their share. Its the way of the world. Let’s figure out legal ways to spread the people’s wealth to all of our friends and relatives. This creates “rolling corruption” – self perpetuating systems for wealth and privilege acquisition.

4) Greed – This state of mind becomes more universal. Leading to a loss of ethics and more corruption. When every “little man” stops aspiring to traditional values or working hard and having a home and achieving measurable small steps to success, and grabs onto the “lottery ideal” – they call it making a killing. An unfortunate, but meaningful phrase.

5) Excessive Taxation – When taxation gets really onerous, the system has broken down. Small business gets demotivated. The system starts telling you – If you grow this big, you will be taxed so much, it won’t be worth it to grow. Being punished for growing is one of the simplest and most direct ways of creating a nanny state. Why get big? The government is competing with you. The “get on the dole” mindset takes hold in the general population, not just the lazy, shiftless and marginally criminal types. Everyone starts seeing the “dole” as a way that one could possible live, and stay respectable.

Prevent Corruption And Crime

While violent crimes are serious, the institutional destructiveness in the form of corruptive con games remains callously counterproductive in extraordinary ways. If this scenario continues, we will all will witness a demise of the globe and might lead to hastening human regression and eventually extinction. Corruption has superseded in every arena and has become mainstream in every dimension to look at. With such poor crime control rates, a widespread increase in criminal conspiracies such as bribery, embezzlement, murders, extortions, human trafficking, etc has seen a skyrocketing increase. According to Corruptions Perceptions Index, fast-growing economies are leading the list of most corrupt countries. Shocking isn’t it. Putting an end to money laundering activities and ceasing the mushroom growth of secret companies from masking corruption can be done to stem the evils from our society and ultimately our planet.

If you think corruption is only limited to companies, economies, government bodies, think again. Poorly equipped schools, counterfeit medicines and illegitimate elections are decided by filthy rich men and women. Bribes and under-the-tables deals do not just steal resources from the most vulnerable lot, but such acts are undermining justice and economic development and eating away everything. Now, we are faced with the most desirable question, “how to prevent crime from hitting us all hard? Well, with reformed crime control measures and due processes, “Uniocracy” is the ultimate answer to end this long existing plight.

Uniocracy is the new world reformation movement that strictly condemns bribery, forgeries, scandals and other activities regarded as corruption. Active participation in Uniocracy and anti-corruption movements will undoubtedly bring fruitful results soon. Do not waste any more minute. Join hands with people who want to reform current world scenario and gift you an ideal world to live. Say no to “corruption and crime.”

Way To Fight Corruption

Corruption is the main reason for the common man not receiving the fruits of development. It is said that if Government allots a million rupees for development to a village, the actual and real expenditure on development is only one tenth of the amount allotted. The rest of the amount changes hands in various forms and fuels artificial demand for things that common man needs or wants like plots of land, small land holdings etc. I think that to tackle corruption requires very tough measures at least for some generations to come so that the habit is wiped out.

Right to property is the one right that encourages corrupt people to earn through dishonest and illegal methods to enjoy easy life and pass on the corrupt wealth to their progeny. The children of corrupt people can enjoy the benefits of corrupt practices of their father or mother and tend to lead luxurious life without making any effort and becoming a burden to the society. Especially in India, due to family bonds, people think of the well being of their children much more and many do any acts of corruption for ensuring easy life for their sons and daughters.

If we take away the right of inheritance of property including movable and immovable assets except for a specified minimum area of land/house/plot and reasonable movable assets by successors and give a decent financial support to the family of the deceased whether he or she is rich or poor, then the economic inequities and social in equities will disappear. The wealth that accrues to the government from the deceased will be sufficient to finance the needs of those wanting financial assistance till they achieve their own financial independence. Another measure to curb corrupt practices is to introduce a law that enables a statutory agency to buy or sell lands. If I want to buy a piece of land I should go to that agency. If I want to sell a piece of land or house I should approach that agency. This way, the prices of land can be controlled and become affordable to individuals. These ideas to curb corruption may appear drastic, but if you have a powerful disease, you have to take a bitter pill for cure. There will be no sweet cure for a bitter disease.

About Anti Corruption Tactics

In short, then, a generic model for a country program would include:

o Participatory diagnoses by local people of the problems, their extent, and their causes (more on how to do this below);

o A combination of a system of structural reforms carefully sequenced with a politically powerful message and some early successes to gain credibility;

o Which areas first: where the public perceives the problem (e.g., extortion in Philippines; licensing bureau in Venezuela; police and courts in many countries); where the economic costs the greatest (actions that distort policies as opposed to who gets a specific contract); where easiest to make a difference in the benefit-cost sense;

o Getting big fish (many ways to get). Illicit wealth as criteria. People know who is corrupt, yet most charges are false in public hot lines etc. Has to be within the ruling party or not credible;

o Reforms of incentives (first the easy ones revenue-raising areas), then systematic reforms beginning with objectives, on to measures, and finally to pay-performance links; and

o Greater transparency.

Denouncing and prosecuting a few big-time perpetrators of bribery, extortion, smuggling, tax evasion, and other illicit activities. But to learn this lesson from recent international experience, people must also learn one more: successful campaigns against corruption do not stop with denunciations. They go beyond the prosecution of individuals to the systematic reform of information and incentives in both the public and private sectors.

First some examples : Hong Kong used to be awash in corruption. Then in 1973 a new Independent Commission against Corruption was formed. It had new teeth, and new eyes. It possessed powers to investigate suspected offenders and had new means for obtaining information about the wealth of public servants. But despite its powers, at first no one believed that the ICAC would succeed any more than previous efforts to rewrite laws and create investigatory bodies. Credibility came when the ex-police chief of Hong Kong, Peter Godber, was extradited from retirement in England and punished in Hong Kong. The ICAC also nailed the ex-number two and scores of other high-ranking police officials.

To a cynical public and a hardened civil service, frying these big fish sent a credible signal: “The rules of the game really have changed.”

Mexico is famously corrupt, but most observers believe that things have improved markedly under President Carlos Salinas de Gortari. He, too, created new capabilities of investigation and enforcement. But his efforts too were originally greeted with disbelief. Had not his predecessor Miguel de la Madrid called for a “renovation ” but failed to stem corruption? Salinas did not gain credibility until his enforcers pounced on the notorious head of the Pemex syndicate, on a leading narcotics trafficker, and on three high-powered business people who had fiddled with the Mexican stock exchange. One of the latter was the head of Salinas own campaign in one state. The message: If these big fish can be caught and fried, political impunity is a thing of the past.

Italy recent and unprecedented success in attacking corruption has attracted worldwide attention. The crucial first step was frying a top Mafia official, many top business executives, and several major politicians from the ruling party. This told the public that if they came forward and denounced crime and corruption, they could make a difference.
