Are we responsible for the corruption in our society?

Asked by: aditichand1999
  • I believe so

    Think of it as this; how has our society made it to this stage of corruption? The generation of today couldn't get this badly without someone leading us. In the 80's and 90's, mostly everyone partied, drunk alcohol, smoked.. Etc. Now that that time period has begun raising kids, it's very likely we we would become like them and perhaps even worse. No one knows how to really take their anger out anymore so we take it out on other things. I believe that as time continues on, and if we do not start teaching our children correctly that this society could eventually destroy itself by humans vs humans.

  • Consequences of lethargy and apathy.

    We have devolved into a society of instant gratification, general intolerance towards others, greed, vanity, ultra-lust, narcissism, hate, obsession with technology to the point of excluding human interactions and emotions, glorifying ignorance and shunning/mocking intelligence and free thought. We live in a world that feels to myself like a nightmare I cannot wake up from. If you have to ask "are we reaponsible?", you may be part of the problem.

  • To many sheep

    Decay stars with excuses...Self intrest and sheep mentalety...Why should I when they dont. STOP being sheep it lets mad men turn into wolfs .
    Individuals be moraly strong fight for the week becouse you are strong not becouse the majorety around you accept * just do the right thing . Based in moral and etics kindness and goodwill. Be a good person stand tall. Its the only way to change the destructive path the world is on.

  • Yes we are responsible

    We easily says that our politicians are corrupt but we never thinks that we people are only responsible for it . We as an individual don't do anything even we don't cast vote for the betterment of our society we just vote on the basis of our mother tongue. We just prefer our personal interest. It's a harsh reality but this is what we are.

  • We are the real culprits....

    Well if we say that a particular government official is corrupt and that he or she is corrupt, are we really looking at ourselves? Who is it that pays such men off. If we say no to bribery no son of a gun can actually practice corruption, as simple as that..

  • It's a painful truth. But, YES

    We are responsible. Because we think of our own Profit and loss not about Country's growth. We give bribe to many people to get our work done. We do not oppose those people because we are so involved in our life that we do not have time to complain or protest. We do not think about the loss which our country suffer due to our selfish nature.
    Here is my another view about corruption....If a politician is doing fraud and getting our money in his account. Who is responsible for that...It's us because we gave vote to that politician. It's us who worked as stare for that politician..It's us who became fool by their Myth.
    SO, IF WE ARE NOT AWARE OF GOT POLITICIANS AND GIVING VOTE TO CORRUPT PEOPLE. OBVIOUSLY WE ARE RESPONSIBLE.

  • Corruption Is Our Fault

    I believe we are responsible for the corruption of our society. I honestly don't know who we would blame, if not ourselves. I believe some of the systems we chose to follow, such as consumerism, have exacerbated the problem, but overall humans are to blame. Corrupted society can only be corrected by obtaining more and higher moral standards.

  • We are responsible but not the way you think

    While it is true that we are responsible, and accountable, for the corruption in society. Whether it be directly or indirectly. To solve the problem, we cannot do so through the use of politics. Because politics are inherently flawed and designed to favor the elites of the world. To use politics for good is like trying to put out a fire with an empty hose.

    We should be first become wise over the whole situation. Its best to look at history. Biblical Israel is our best example. They were destroyed for trying to live without GOD. No matter what tragedies occurred in their nation, instead of asking for GOD's help, they took it upon themselves to try and thrive on their own. Hence, the reason for their destruction. We weren't put here to thrive on our own. There is an inherent purpose for the whole world of people. And it includes GOD. People today are very, very unwise and ignorant of this fact. They were born into a society that has fallen by the wayside. But anyone can know the Truth if they are willing to accept it. GOD becomes a blessing in your life as long as He is invited in. But keep in mind that "blessing" doesn't mean materialism. A lack of those things is actually the way to contentment. But our society of people continue to strive towards self indulgence and "self" everything else. No wonder the world is screwed up. The world as a whole should resemble the family unit. And in a family we learn selflessness, sharing, caring, modesty, and every other virtue that cannot be bought and sold. Instead, we see a hypocrisy around every corner. Parents trying to make their kids be good, while striving to get what they can from the world. It's a tragedy that is intentional and ignorant at the same time. We need to teach GOD's children to hate money and all that it stands for. And they should loathe those who strive for power and claim to use it for good. And anyone who stands in a spotlight to glorify themselves is the scum of the Earth. The President of the United States or any other country's leader should ring a bell. Society has become sickening, spiritually. And I tell you this. GOD will not wait for a country's leader to bring Him in. YOU better bring GOD into your life NOW. Otherwise, you will perish right along with those who are foolish enough to follow a liar then to devote their every waking hour to the TRUTH.

  • Yes we are responsible for the corruption in our society

    In my opinion i think that we are responsible for the corruption in our society, I think this because as individuals we all live in our society therefore we are responsible for the society we live in. If we are not responsible, who is? Our predecessors didn't manage to rule out or substantially reduce corruption,we are the only ones that can do this. If we ourselves don't take responsibility for the corruption of our society, how can we teach the next generations to come about a life free from corruption?

  • Where to go

    If we Think That corruption is in our Society that's partially true but we can not blame everyone for that.There are so many we resemble the honest person,even in worse condition. Sometime we are the key to corruption but not fully aware.Society has to learn that Honesty is far much better that the Corruption.
    Chasing the luxury causes corruption. And if we are satisfied in our own tern we are not responsible to the Corruption.

  • I am not responsible.

    Society consists of various kinds of people. Each with their own opinion, mindset, thinking, habits, culture and knowledge. You say that if the society is determined to stop corruption then.... But saying anything like this is impractical. You can't expect everyone to get legitimate just by awareness and motivation. I am a stubborn fellow and i am fully corrupt. I got changed ...But.. I see people making thousands of crores from our money. That money which i earned by hard work and labour. I need money to marry my daughter at a good place and now my morality is losing faith. Now again i am corrupt and happy as no one even knows that i am corrupt.
    Even a 2 day jail will erase this audacity and act from my mind but the weakness of the Law enforcing Body gives me enough courage t do these kinds of act.


    (I just wanted to make a point and i am not saying that awareness and motivation should not be there.) EVERYBODY is Responsible. Key role lies with everyone and mainly if Law enforcement is done involving the society as a whole then it would be the best.

If we seriously desire for a corruption-free society, decent political atmosphere, has to put genuine commitment at our own end, as you know most of the communities (such as Bengali or Tamil) in this sub-continent are covered by ‘Culture of Poverty' (hopelessness), irrespective of class or economic strata, lives in pavement or apartment. Nobody is ashamed of the deep-rooted corruption in this society at heart, decaying general quality of life, bad Politico-Governance, poor work place, weak mother language, continuous consumption of common Social Space. We love to become parents only by self-procreation (mindlessly & blindfold supported by lame excuses, driven by the very animal instinct) depriving their(the children) fundamental rights of a caring society, fearless & dignified living. Never search for other positive alternative gesture, adopting reasonable values for a passionate way of parenthood, deliberately stop giving birth to any child him/herself here till it improves up to the mark, co-parenting children those are born out of extreme poverty, instead. Introduce a new fashion among Commoners. If a pure freedom is desired, from vicious cycle of poverty, rotten capitalism need to involve ourselves in 'Production of space' movement, quality Politics would certainly come up. – SB, 16/4, Girish Banerjee Lane, Howrah -711 101, India.
