Why the culture of corruption is very difficult to eradicate?


Corruption is taking the right actions, both overt and covert committed by a person or group. Corruption is such a evil and sinister, is still being done by most of the head of local government and corruption society. It was sad to see inequality corrupt law enforcement with other petty criminals. In fact, if you see corruption as a criminal, he kept a pile bigger motive for the crime. Corruption is not just stealing property, is also an act of embezzlement, robbery, betrayal and the disintegration of the noble values ​of life. From the aspect of leadership, corruption is close to what is called treason and bribery. Corruption can be smoothly because the perpetrator can not be trusted and a traitor minded public mandate.In addition, swing free from the shackles of the corrupt law because it knows how to bribe to certain parties, with both based on the principle of mutual benefit.

Corruption is not just a question of law alone, but also the social, economic, political, cultural and religious. Unequal social reality, people's widespread poverty and inadequate salaries and wages received by a worker, the outbreak of lust of power politics, culture in mental shortcuts rather bypass the rules, and the depoliticization of religion is increasingly shallow faith, everything that has made corruption the more fertile and difficult to eradicate, as well as the many layers of society and national components involved in corruption. Therefore, social deconstruction can not be ignored and we need to design and make it happen in the new anti-corruption community.


These are some actions that can be done to prevent acts of corruption, among others:
1. Cult to be done to eradicate the culture of paternalism among the holders of public office. In office-based career (ending pensions) and politics (limited time servant) who gave birth to seniority often creates a feeling shy.

2. Suppress cultural gifts or "envelope". Corruption could be more fertile one for gift-giving culture growing uncontrollably. In fact, prizes were awarded to people who have public authority has been reduced meaning. For smooth and keep the interest of mutual understanding.

3. Avoid dependence of communalism. Attitudes depend on "collective community", whether political parties, organizations or groups have made many policy makers feel indebted services. Until, that every decision issued by the authority can not be independent and free.

4. Instant kill attitudes, permissive and hedonistic. Corruption occurs because the awareness of the value of working hard and just less of a concern. The procedure was circumcised in order to achieve greater effectiveness with the results of operations and capital is relatively small.

Cultures which perpetuate corrupt practices should be deconstructed through a mechanism of political, legal, educational, social and cultural. In corruption, there are many crimes that harm the value of the rule of law, politics, social communities, customs, morals, religion and harm the public interest. Ironically, conducted a public official.
