This is not about MACC.
This is about moral pervesion, depravity, integrity,dissolution, immorality, rot, putrefaction, putrescence, foulness, pollution, contamination and the opposite of purity and honesty.
“Citizens who crave democracy cannot stand the culture of corruption which leads to a culture of impunity and then to a restraint of public freedom” – William Bourdon
Transparency International defines corruption as follows:
CORRUPTION IS THE ABUSE OFENTRUSTED POWER FOR PRIVATE GAIN.
IT HURTS EVERYONE WHO DEPENDS ON THE INTEGRITY OF PEOPLE IN A POSITION OF AUTHORITY. Read here
Corruption can destroy lifes, families, societies and countries. It is a vicious cycle that threatens everyone, the taker, the giver, the bystander, the innocent and the unborn.
Corruption is the social form of global warming. The bad effects are there clearly to be seen but nothing serious have been done by humanity.
The integrity of any society or of any nation besides other things like rule of law and and social tolerance depends on the degree of corruption or how rampant corruption is in that country.
I have a friend whose family originated from Kampuchea who told me the problems they face when sending aid missions to their former birthplace. Their entourage will be stopped at the border and many things confisticated, then only whatever they have will reach their destination.
Kampuchea is so poor because the government is not able to collect taxes as most of the people have been pre-taxed by the government officials.
Without taxes, the Kampuchean government won’t have the money for development and this will forever be the case. The situation is further worsened when the ministers themselves are corrupt too.
In Malaysia, the corruption is rampant too, the only reason that Malaysia is slightly better than Kampuchea is that there are more money available in Malaysia.
Still this should not be allowed to happen because Malaysia can go bankrupt if left unchecked. Moreover MACC is hopeless, a joke, a sandiwara.
