Commenting on the President’s speech at the weekend, Enyih Paul Atogho had an unusual choice of words. “Corruption is a necessary evil,” he blurted in an interview on the English language newscast on State television. Attempting an explanation to the awkward assertion, the Momo CPDM politician said “it takes a long time to make a corrupt person and also a long time to destroy the habit”; leaving viewers wondering about the link between the comment and the justification.
I don't think that corruption is a necessary evil for success in any sphere in general, but presently in India corruption has spread in all sector from top to bottom. Our system is being corrupt now-a-days due to lack of awareness among the people for it. The common man must be awaken to fight the gigantic monster of corruption, the general public must raise voice against the corrupt personnel whether he is a politician or bureaucrat.
Corruption is a Necessary Evil for Success in Any Sphere !!!!
In many ways, it seems that corruption is a necessary evil. After all, it does exist in almost every society and is present among different races, religions, and socioeconomic classes. News outlets often cite corruption as being the catalyst for many social ills. For example, when Greece’s economy tanked, US News and World Report wrote a story entitled, Survey: Greece seen as most corrupt in EU (Rising, 2012). The New York Times states that corruption within the Russian government is tied to both human rights violations and environmental devastation (Friedman, 2012). TIME Magazine blames the president of Haiti’s corrupt practices for much of the country’s continued suffering despite receiving so much foreign aid (Fieser, 2012). The Washington Post states that corruption within the Catholic Church is seen as a major contributor to the allegations that high-ranking church members ignored allegations of child molestation, putting thousands of children at risk of abuse. (Stevens-Arroyo, 2012). So with corruption leading to all these terrible outcomes, why does it continue to exist?
