here in philippines, as if corruption is food... powerful people want it more... it will never stop.. the more people likes to run for election, not to help, but for selfish purposes... im getting tired of our country, it would have been a better place if this wasnt the priority.. its a hopeless fight and people are suffering in poverty while the rich are getting richer... what about in your country? are you satisfied with your government? is it showing corruption too? do you think it will end?

No Vehaileairu, unfortunately it will never end. I think that power corrupts people, so I don't think a non corrupt person at power could exist.... You speak about your country, ok, but what about the others? Every government is corrupt, there are more corrupt and less corrupt countries, but every government is corrupt. I live in Italy, you have to think that our politicians earn 16000/18000 euro every month, I earn 1200 euros in my office.... this is disgusting, they get richer every month while people fights every day to buy food, clothes, etc. I don't believe in the politicians, they are a mass of selfish people who don't care anything.

well i'm from india. do i need to say more ? On a serious note, yes, india is full of corruption. we can't really blame the government for it completely coz it's the people who PAY them and encourage them to corrupt us back in return. it's like a vicious circle - you can't get out of it.
