They are equal to other government officials like tax collection service, the court of law, etc. Are you wondering why such officials travel through corruption path?

There are a lot of similar things seen in those countries, and it is clear that corruption is not limited to cultural, political or geographic boundaries.

Corruption-1For instance, if a foreign business wishes to open a business in a new country, he/she has to pay a bribe to the government officials and other important heads of the society. It is impossible to start without their support. They would not allow him/her to do the business. If the person declines, they would even take actions to destroy completely or stop his/her business. The person will not have any other hope or ways to avoid corruption. They would start to give to make their business dream true.

To summarize, corruption cannot be stopped by a single person. It should be a total revolution. Every person in the society should come forward to support the campaign. If one person gives way for corruption, then it will totally spread in the city. Corruption is like a spreadable disease. It can be controlled with the entire nation’s effort.
