Corruption

Can Western Civilization escape from it?

Perhaps I am na├»ve.  I think that people have this appetite for truth.  Give people the truth, and they have the chance to do the right thing.  Hide the truth well enough, and there may not be a chance.

So what is truth?  Clearly, anything that is said without the intention to gain from it, and with the possibility of losing something from having said it, cannot be far from it.

Lies have the property of a gain attached to it.  A person lies in order to gain something.

Corruption cannot exist in the sanitizing atmosphere of truth.
