Corruption exists in every government worldwide.
Only communist governments can work to clean the government of corruption.
After all, capitalism is corruption proceduralized.
Nothing happens in a capitalist system without payouts for favors.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?
