I’ve traveled a lot and thus have witnessed corruption everywhere [every single country I spent time in]. It’s not a particular ‘US thingie’ and we should not be fooled to believe ‘we’ are any better than ‘they.’

Corruption is a moral issue and should be dealt with on an individual level.

The West routinely produces indices of corruption on which it presents itself as holding a moral high ground over others. The myth needs debunking because it is a myth which has served to seriously erode democracy — and the corruption is enabled by a legal system which aids and abets it by misnaming it.

In other words, it’s systemic, not merely individual.
