It is a common usage in the West and Western news media,

to hear a word 'Corruption' projected towards non-Western world now and then.


But when there are such cases like corruption inside the Western society itself,

The word they normally use is 'Greed'.



Is it Corruption or Greed?

I would say greed is more individual and may or may not be corrupt, corruption usually means several or more people complicit in dishonest dealings.

Corruption is rife in politics.

If there was no greed, there would be no corruption. People do corrupt things to gain more benifit from a situation, this is because of greed. Corruption is only corruption is the law says it is.

Capitalist Western society thrives and preys upon the rest of the innocent world.

So its normal for them to look good to theirselves and pretend bad to others.

Imagine a crook lawyer wearing a nice suit everyday to work, and looking down upon others.

Chino,


  Western world, such as USA, appears to promote individualism, mainly so because its ruled by


minority power elite that does NOT want to share power and wealth.



         According to TIME magazine cover story ( 10.10.2011),


       ' a mere 1% of ruling power elite, mostly make up of Anglo-Americans,


             own a staggering 35% of American wealth'.



How do you explain that, my friend?!
