Corruption: Why is it so difficult to eradicate?

Through several changes in government, and even the changes in the leadership, we are still affected by corruption in our government. The method may change when the leaders change but it still remains, people will always find a way to make more money through illegitimate means. Which leads me to ask: Why can't we get rid of corruption?

I think the root cause of corruption is some problems exist in the management system of goverment. The corruption can't be eradicated completely but it can be controled into a samll range. If the corruption is severe and general, their system is defective. It's terrible.

You do have a point. The pressure of providing for ones family is a lot. It would also be difficult to find a spouse and a family who understands and accepts that working for the government uprightly is more important than the family. I think everything must fall into place for it to work, given the current state of the international economy, it would be very hard for people resist the temptation.
