If we were honest with ourselves does the world really run on corruption meaning are we, as humans, inevitably inclined towards corruption?

Seems like every time I turn the TV on there is some news about a corrupt politician or government worker being chastised and/or prosecuted. It is so depressing.


I live in a country that is one of the better anti-corruption places in the world but is not totally corruption free.

Update 2:

...which is the UK. With the greatest respect...the UK is way better than the US at this.

Update 3:

that is to say the UK is way better at anti-corruption than the US at this just be clear :)

    Greed, corruption, tyranny, all the things our founding fathers created the constitution and the bill of right to defend us against.
